Our real estate lawyers have considerable experience in dealing with all associated property and litigation advice.

We specialise in advising on heads of terms, notices, assignment, subletting, variation, forfeiture, eviction, dilapidations and tenant default, as well as complex and high-value development work.

Our team currently acts for clients in various industry sectors, including pubcos and hospitality, retail, charities, care homes, and letting agents, to name a few together with various investment companies and commercial and industrial estate landlords and tenants.

Being able to assist and provide advice at all stages of the landlord and tenant relationship provides us with a thorough overview of any property portfolio that we are instructed on.
