Retail & Leisure

Retail & Leisure

We pride ourselves on having secured and retained repeat instructions from many national retailers in their acquisition programmes – often against ambitious timescales. One of our clients asks us every year to help them establish over 25 ‘pop up’ Christmas stores in the run up to the festive season. You can read more about our retail team and how they can help you by clicking here.

Our work includes retail space within most of the established shopping centres and ‘trophy’ high streets across England and Wales, so we have extensive experience of dealing with institutional landlords such as Westfield, British Land and Land Securities. We also receive regular referrals from landlords’ agents, who recommend us to prospective tenants in search of seasoned legal advice.

Restaurants, pubs and bars

Acting for clients who need space for use as restaurants is a natural extension to our retail work. We help to secure new and repeat instructions in relation to properties throughout the country – in varying locations from shopping centres and retail park drive-thrus, to high streets and hospitals. Our work sometimes includes the acquisition of existing trading locations with the trading business, assets and staff, in which case support is provided by our corporate commercial and employment teams.
