Commercial Property

Whether we are called upon to advise with regard to the conversion of a house into flats with local authority permissions and the drafting and settling of new leases or whether our client is asking us to settle the lease of its new City of London headquarters, our role over the last 130 years has changed little. It is to ensure that the client can achieve as close to its goal as possible and to maximise its profits with the minimum of delay, administration and cost.
