Property - Commercial

We have been at the heart of the commercial property sector for many years and our experience allows us to offer clear, commercially astute advice aimed at adding value to your business.

Our specialist advisers are experts in all aspects of commercial property including sales and purchases, property, development and property finance for freehold and leasehold properties, licensed and retail premises, landlord and tenant, estate management and rural land.

We appreciate that legal advice is only one aspect of a successful deal. That is why we have developed close working relationships with relevant professionals including surveyors and financial advisers throughout the West Midlands and beyond to ensure all your requirements will be covered.

We also recognise that commercial property matters invariably involve many legal disciplines, that is why we liaise closely with colleagues across the firm, regularly working alongside our corporate team to advise on the property aspects of business acquisitions and disposals, reorganisations and business recovery and insolvency situations.
