The UK retail sector is evolving rapidly – for example the way in which consumers shop and the changing nature of the high street are all affecting the use, financial value and location of retail assets.
Forsters advises a range of clients who own, invest or develop real estate assets within the retail sector and our advice principally centres on property matters. We also have the experience and track record to advise on tax efficient structures and dispute resolution.
We have an extensive track record of advising developers and investors, particularly on large-scale and complex developments where there is often a mixed use element. We also act for one of the leading restaurant operators advising on their new restaurant developments, franchising and general portfolio management.
Our cohesive approach enables us to draw on a variety of skill sets to progress schemes from the planning stage right through to negotiating leases with anchor tenants or in the case of owner occupiers, operating. The comprehensive commercial and pragmatic advice we deliver to our clients provides a solid foundation to their overall investment strategy and approach.
