Working together

Our expert team work together with landowners, developers from acquisition, to development and completion of the final plot sale, focusing on ensuring future marketability and ongoing management of the development.

The team also collaboratively works with clients’ other external appointed property professionals such as; surveyors and planning consultant – to ensure an integrated approach.


Pragmatic and Practical advice

Our team is large enough to provide our clients with a full range of expert advice upon all aspects of commercial property, whilst remaining small enough to provide a personal service to our clients, many of whom have enjoyed using our services for many years. With specialists in property matters, dispute resolution, funding, planning and commercial agreements, we offer a fully integrated service to our clients. Our aim is to work in partnership with our clients and their professional advisers, in order to achieve our clients’ goals and to seek solutions where others may only see problems. We offer pragmatic and practical advice, with a view to ensuring that our clients are able to take well informed commercial decisions. We believe that it is this philosophy that has led to the continued growth of the team and a record of client retention that we are very
proud of.

Our clients include residential and commercial developers, individual and corporate investors, charities, financial institutions, public authorities and trading business, purchasing or leasing premises for their own use.
