Our real estate solicitors offer a comprehensive service for a wide range of businesses throughout the UK, providing the expert legal support you need across all areas of commercial property law.
Our property development solicitors regularly work with both large and smaller developers on all aspects of commercial property development. We can guide and support you with everything from acquiring development sites, gaining planning permissions, construction contracts and disposal of completed developments.
We work with both commercial landlords and business tenants, providing our legal expertise for everything from drafting commercial tenancy agreements and negotiating amendments to managing the landlord-tenant relationship and breaking commercial leases.
We can help you buy and sell property for investment purposes, as well as assist with the management of your investment property portfolio. Our commercial property team has the expertise to ensure your investment is protected and that you can meet your financial objectives.
We act for one of the UK’s largest producers of construction materials, giving us a high level of expertise in this area. We are therefore well placed to advise clients engaged in mineral and aggregate extraction, providing guidance on all of the legal aspects of land acquisition for these purposes, including key issues such as environmental legislation.
Our agricultural property solicitors have extensive experience advising and representing a wide variety of clients in all areas of agricultural and rural property law. We understand that rural businesses often come with more than just commercial considerations, with many having been run by the same families for generations. We have the expertise to ensure both business and personal factors are taken account of and that the long-term success of your business is assured.
We have strong expertise in renewable energy projects, including both on-shore and off-shore wind farms and solar energy projects. Our property solicitors can assist you with everything from site acquisition and planning permission to all of the relevant environmental legislation, government subsidies and commercial contracts.
If you are experiencing a conflict involving commercial property, our dispute resolution team can find fast, cost-effective legal solutions that protect your business interests. Wherever possible, we will aim to find a solution without resorting to court action. This generally makes it quicker and less expensive to resolve disputes, while preventing a conflict from escalating and minimising the risk of damage to your reputation or key business relationships.
