We recognise each real estate project is different and we treat each of them with the equal importance they deserve, no matter the scale or size of the transaction or client.
Our clients tell us that they like the way that we do real estate business. We invest time getting to know what they are trying to achieve from the transaction and their real estate assets. We combine our legal expertise with significant commercial acumen, to translate real estate objectives into reality, whatever the scale, size, scope or complexity of the transaction.
We have set out below further details of our expertise and the particular services which we offer. Each time we receive an enquiry we are happy to have an initial discussion about the scope and complexity of the transaction and give you a steer on what might be required and who is best placed to deal with the various aspects of the instruction.

Our science park team cover all aspects of commercial law, and our dedicated team work with science parks and their tenant’s to find legal and commercially viable solutions to any issues that arise. We are active participants in the UK Science Parks Association and members of the team have been advising science and research parks for over thirty years.
Our team has experience in dealing with science and research parks that may be university or research facility led or run by a private developer/owner or a joint venture. We have established new science parks and helped develop existing ones.
We deal with both the science parks directly (either the owner or the landlord) as well as providing a range of services for science park tenants. As a sector team we meet regularly to review trends and issues relevant to our science and research park clients and their tenant’s.
Our experience with science parks, in general, is that they create an environment that facilitates the support and growth of the tenant businesses. However, science parks are still a commercial entity, particularly as we are seeing a wider range of investors and owners into the sector. As such, we have established a range of expertise within our team that aim to facilitate this environment while ensure the science park will remain commercially viable.
"large enough to provide a comprehensive range of legal services while maintaining strong client relationships at partner level."
Given our location - we are based out-of-town/ City - we are able to provide charity retailers with cost competitive legal fees often on a fixed fee basis.
We recognise that charity retailers do not want to spend money on solicitors' fees but they need to protect their organisation by doing things in the right way.
Our approach is to provide charity retailers with straightforward, commercial advice which helps them to focus on their core objective of raising funds whilst staying on the right side of the law.
