Commercial Property

Building a successful relationship

It’s the support we give and our ‘can-do’ approach

that sets us apart We understand that our clients’ primary commercial objective is to get any property deal done as quickly as possible. We work hard to make things happen, and will not allow the transaction to become bogged down in unnecessary detail. Obviously we will thoroughly investigate any potential pitfalls and communicate them with you as early as possible, but we will always seek to find a balance between protecting your best interests and getting the deal done.

Whilst we have clients, large and small, from a broad spectrum of industries, we have particular expertise in the following sectors:-

The acquisition and disposal of freehold and leasehold property

The airline industry

The granting and renewal of leases of business premises

Secured institutional lending

We don’t believe that a client should ever have to phone us to find out what is happening on a matter. We see it as a vital part of our role to regularly contact our clients and keep them informed of developments.


We appreciate that speed is of the essence. We operate highly efficient and effective case management systems which enable us to meet tight deadlines and bring the deal to a close as quickly as possible.
