Getting help from true experts in the field can make all the difference to the success of an investment in the property sector.

Understanding and exploring your objectives is our goal and we provide a dedicated, specialist and co-ordinated service to ensure that those objectives are met, with added value in mind. Our expert teams advise clients on property investments and can guide on how best to structure this, including your strategic and high-profile property transactions.

If you’re interested in exploring funding choices, such as acquisition funding (asset and corporate), development funding or refinancing and restructuring, our knowledgeable finance team can provide advice on the most suitable investment vehicle.

And if you’re agreeing a lease, we can support you through the entire process from agreeing heads of terms, advising on issues such as repairing obligations, rent reviews, break options and security of tenure. We can also support you should you wish to transfer your lease or grant an underlease, as well as any situations where landlord’s consent may be required.

Our property litigation team can help with contentious matters, including issues caused by break clauses, lease renewals and rent reviews. And should you need it, can provide commercial and specialised support in the case of a landlord dispute.

A number of businesses already trusts our end-to-end service for their landlord and tenant issues, including companies in the manufacturing, hotel and leisure, retail, renewable, agricultural, finance and IT sectors. Rest assured your investment or tenancy is in safe hands.
