Corporate Occupiers & Tenants
Our Real Estate team acts for occupiers of commercial properties across a whole range of sectors, either as owner occupiers or as tenants under leases and in relation to single or multiple sites.
We work closely with our clients and their internal and external property advisers and help them with their strategies to ensure that they maximise the benefit of the use and value of their real estate holdings in agreeing contract and lease terms.
The problems and issues with which occupiers grapple are multifaceted: we deal with realisation programs, the acquisition of new premises, renewals of existing leases, the management and redevelopment of existing premises, disposals (including part disposals arising from “downsizing” and corporate reorganisation) and advise on all related construction and planning aspects.
