Real Estate lawyers who understand your business.

Real Estate lawyers who cut through the noise of the deal.

Our focus is getting to know our clients’ businesses so that we can provide commercially attuned legal advice.

Real Estate is a core part of most businesses and requires careful structuring and planning in order to maximise returns and drive profits. Our real estate lawyers advise on the myriad of issues affecting real estate as an asset class; from advising on the best funding structures for acquiring real estate to joint venture arrangements for development projects.

We are able to service all of your real estate needs, but we also have particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Landlord and tenant services

    We advise landlords and tenants on the whole range of landlord and tenant matters including lease negotiations, lease renewals, rent deposits, assignment and underlettings, concession arrangements and compliance with lease covenants. We also advise landlords on the active management of their property portfolios such as regearing leases, rent reviews, obtaining vacant possession and repurposing.

  • Developers

    From development agreements to planning agreements and land options right through to plot sales, we have in-depth expertise to protect our clients’ interests and help them achieve optimum outcomes. Our significant expertise in development projects gives us a real understanding of the full lifecycle of a development. We collaborate across sectors and are able to offer advice on energy & infrastructure, construction, planning & environmental matters and funding. We have national breadth and depth to offer a full service to clients across all development workstreams. We advise across  all classes of real estate; from core plus to alternative assets, such as build to rent and student accommodation.

  • Banks and funders

    We advise many banks and funders on investment and development funding, borrower insolvency and the implications of defaults arising under their financing arrangements.

  • Investment property

    Investment in real estate has become more challenging over recent years but our lawyers have expertly guided our clients in structuring property investment deals and avoiding the pitfalls in this area. We advise on all investment transactions across the sector. A strong understanding of the different funding routes can mean the difference between success and failure.

  • Landowners

    We advise landowners on the full range of issues which can impact land ownership (commercial and agricultural) such as land promotion and option agreements, waste management, granting and acquiring third party rights, infrastructure and such renewable energy projects , mineral extraction, joint ventures with developers, and disposals.

  • Health and Extra Care Investor Operators

    We work closely with various investor operators within the health and extra care sectors. These include residential and nursing homes, supported living, and retirement villages.


Its about so much more than just a game.

Protecting the home of Swindon Town Football Club

Founded in 1879 Swindon Town Football Club have been cornerstone of the local community for over 140 years, and since 1896 their footballing home has been The County Ground.

However, being owned by Swindon Borough Council, having multiple changes in club ownership, and the fortunes of the club fluctuating over the decades, more recent developments have been few and far between.
