Understanding the challenges that come with Commercial Property transactions, we acknowledge there are often many different areas of expertise required to meet your specific needs throughout the life cycle of a project. That is why we have close working relationships within the firm (Litigation, Corporate, Private Client) and locally with professionals such as Commercial Property agents, surveyors, and tax and financial advisors to offer you a seamless service. This collaborative approach gives us the breadth of knowledge and experience to enable us to provide a comprehensive and commercially-focused service tailored to your needs.
We understand that costs associated with a transaction are a key factor in choosing your solicitor.
We aim to provide an accurate and realistic estimate of costs at the outset of the matter taking into account the information provided to us. Whilst costs can change throughout the course of a transaction, we will always keep you informed where this is the case.
We are happy to have a no-obligation discussion about your matter to provide you with an initial cost estimate.
When advising on larger projects we can draw upon the combined expertise of our Corporate & Commercial and Litigation Teams to ensure that you receive the specialist advice you need at every step of the way.
