Occupier Services Lawyers
The Occupier Services industry is under pressure but with that pressure comes the opportunity to ensure that the space you occupy is the best it can be for your business’s needs.
As a full-service law firm, our approach is refreshingly different. We can draw on the integrated resources of our real estate, planning, construction, disputes, technology, finance, employment and tax-related issue teams. We will work with you to deliver your new premises on time, on budget and with a minimal amount of disturbance to your business.
Legal issues you may face include:
- HQ relocations
- exit strategies including break options
- restructuring and regearing
- sale and leasebacks and
- portfolio management.
