Our commercial landlord and tenants solicitors can guide you through creating commercial leases, rent reviews, rent recovery, forfeiture issues and anything else you need to protect your commercial interests.

Our leasehold enfranchisement lawyers can advise you on your rights and guide you through the process of buying the freehold or establishing your ‘right to manage’ to facilitate your business goals.

Borrowing money secured against commercial property or land can be an effective, affordable way to raise essential capital for a business or for reinvestment.

Commercial property dispute resolution and litigation

Disputes over commercial property can be time-consuming, expensive and a major distraction from your day-to-day operations if not handled correctly. Whether you are a landlord, tenant, property investor or developer, any conflict over property can be a threat to your immediate plans and your long-term success.

Our Commercial Litigation team has extensive experience in a wide range of property disputes, meaning we are able to offer fast, cost-effective solutions that match your business goals.

Wherever possible, we will try to resolve your property dispute without the need for court proceedings, using Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods such as negotiation and mediation. This generally allows us to resolve disputes faster, at a lower cost and with less conflict for everyone involved, while allowing you to keep the matter private and protect your reputation and business relationships.

However, where court action is the best approach, we have the experience and expertise to ensure you have the best possible representation so you can achieve the right outcome for your business interests.
