Commercial Occupiers


We advise occupiers across all sectors and our clients include a wide spectrum of users of commercial premises from office users and retailers to leisure occupiers and hotels.

We advise landlords and tenants on the letting and acquisition of all types of property, asset management matters, all matters relating to pre-lets, sales and leasebacks, applications for consent, HQ relocations and lease variations.

We are very experienced in dealing with lease termination and renewal issues such as dilapidations and negotiating new lease terms and we work closely with our property disputes resolution team in dealing with such issues as and when they arise.
