Are you entering into a commercial lease?

Our team are experts in the area of commercial leasing with experience acting on behalf of both landlords and tenants.

Depending on your needs, we’ll draft a new commercial lease agreement or review one that’s been presented to you to sign. When your commercial lease comes up for renewal, we will review the renewal documentation and draft any necessary variations to meet your changing needs. Whatever phase of leasing we advise on, we always ensure your best interests are represented.
