Commercial property

Commercial property is a niche strength at Sherrards. We are known for our entrepreneurial and commercial approach and field a highly experienced team: most of our practitioners have a background in City or West End commercial property firms.

Our commercial property team undertakes the full spectrum of instruction, including development, investment, acquisitions and disposals, and asset management. We have a particular specialism in serving retail and investment property businesses, but also act for many long-standing and high-profile clients across a broad range of disciplines, including franchising.

We regard a thorough understanding of our client’s business as essential to delivering an effective service and are proud of our high levels of client retention and repeat business. Clients value our “willingness to get to the point quickly and to engage with the other side to reach a sensible conclusion” (Chambers & Partners).

We are responsive and seek to provide quick but considered solutions during transactions. Throughout our negotiations – from client instruction to contract – we aim to communicate in a clear and straightforward manner, avoiding unnecessary legal language. We have a reputation for driving transactions forward – not aggressively, but in a manner which strives to achieve our client’s desired objectives and timeline.

We prefer face-to-face contact where possible, as negotiating by e-mail can result in the matter becoming unnecessarily protracted.
