Well respected in the sector, we deal with space requirements, licensing, employment advice, corporate contracts and also provide advice on corporate restructuring and insolvencies.

We have a strong reputation in this sector, built on representing occupiers, investors and insolvency practitioners. This wide experience makes us commercially astute and ensures we understand what’s really important to our clients.

Benefits we bring to your business

As well as a full service offer we provide clients with a 'go to' contact who manages their transactions and is up-to-speed with their portfolio and business needs. We cover all property in Scotland: in the main cities, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness, and in other cities, towns and more rural communities.

We act for many major retailers, including several household names, as well as commercial landlords in managing their land and buildings in Scotland. We also have a lot of experience in the food and drink sector.

In recent years the Scottish commercial real estate market has seen many changes, no more so than in the retail and leisure sectors. Our clients expect us to understand their markets and to offer pragmatic, commercial advice and guidance. We’re also expected to deliver this within tight timeframes and within pre-agreed fee structures.

We’re specialists with genuine expert knowledge, here to offer valuable advice. Since 2005 we’ve grown to become one of Scotland's leading players, recognised by independent Legal directory Legal 500, who rank us in their top tier for commercial property retail occupiers in Scotland.

Our advice is clear and easy to follow. We offer transparent billing, agreeing a clear fee structure with our clients, so that they can be reassured that they’ll only pay what they have agreed to pay.
