Commercial Investment and Development

Our service spans the lifetime of a property investment, with a focus on helping our clients make the best possible return.

What we do

We are a leading adviser to commercial developers, owner occupiers, contractors, banks and institutional funders. We have extensive experience advising on the development, acquisition, management and disposal, including forward sales and pre-lets, of property assets and portfolios. We work across a range of private and public sector areas including retail, hotels, offices, hospitals and care homes.

Our team advises on complex site assemblies, dealing with rights of light and boundary issues, obtaining vacant possession, highway and services diversions, planning and highway agreements, negotiating construction documentation and advising on procurement, joint ventures, sustainable development and zero carbon compliance.

Detailed elements of our services

Asset management: We act on all matters connected with lettings and asset management including tenant relocations, pre-lets, applications for consent, lease variations and re-gears. We work closely with the dispute lawyers in our team giving advice on vacant possession strategies, termination of tenancies, insolvency, dilapidations, forfeiture, debt recovery, breaches of covenant and 1954 Act lease renewals.

Property finance: Our experience includes financing acquisitions and developments, acquiring corporate entities and corporate borrowing. We advise on financial structures, refinancing and restructuring matters. Our team includes Islamic finance experts.

Fund management: We advise on fund regulation, drafting the terms of the funds, dealing with management and distribution agreements, advising on fund manager remuneration, tax structuring for fund managers and investors, and advising on distribution and management of funds.
