Local commercial property solicitors

If you have commercial property, it’s almost certainly fundamental to your business – and your ability to trade. It’s important that you’re in the right commercial property, at the right time and on the right terms.

As commercial property specialists, we work with owners, occupiers, developers, investors and tenants of commercial property in Bristol and the Mendips. We have experience in dealing with a range of commercial property types – including warehouses, cafes, shops, pubs and offices.

Property can be one of a business’ most valuable assets; so it’s important that it’s looked after. But regardless of whether you own the property, conduct your business from there or rely on it for security, one thing is for sure – we understand the vital role it plays within the context of your business plans.

Our commercial lawyers offer an end-to-end commercial property service. From acquisition to planning and fitting out to financing, our commercial property solicitors have vast experience in a range of commercial property matters for both landlords and tenants. We offer help and advice on aspects such as commercial letting, sub-letting, lease negotiations and surrendering your lease.

We have experience in a range of commercial property matters, including:

  • Sales and acquisition of commercial property
  • Developing land into commercial or residential property
  • Commercial leasing for landlords and tenants
  • Advising and acting for property developers and construction companies
  • Options, conditional sale and purchase agreements
  • Overage and clawback agreements

We pride ourselves on the strong relationships we build with our clients; we’ll work in partnership with you to secure the most advantageous commercial deal for your business. We’re focused, pragmatic and commercially-minded. But most importantly of all, we’re on your side – protecting your interests and those of your investment or business.
