Our Occupier team provides a comprehensive service to clients. We have the ability to deliver all the advice that is required in the process - from agreeing heads of terms through to move in date. In fact, we have provided advice on almost every size and type of corporate relocation, expansion or first time acquisition and are as comfortable advising on large scale office HQ deals as we are on small space acquisitions.
As one of the leading real estate law firms, we have a deep understanding of occupational property including issues relating to the fabric of the building, its M&E systems and provision of landlord services.
Our role is to act as trusted advisor throughout the process. We take time to understand our clients’ needs, including timescales, ensuring that they are made aware of any issues, risks or opportunities. We have excellent working relationships with the leading property agents and our experience shows that working collaboratively with existing teams on issues such as location, size of space and specification will help to ensure that the project runs on time, within budget and with minimal disruption to the client’s day-to-day business.
