Corporate Occupiers

Corporate occupiers can have a large and diverse portfolio of real estate.

Not simply office buildings, this can include specialised buildings such as: retail space; data centres; R&D sites; hotels; football stadia; shared working hubs; golf courses; leisure centres; health spas; call centres; business parks; mast sites, and everything in between.

Our real estate team’s expertise and experience covers all aspects of the acquisition and disposal of real estate and asset management. We provide clients with commercial, pragmatic advice across a broad spectrum of real estate issues, whatever the size and shape of the asset or portfolio.

Typically we advise on:

  • leasing or building new premises
  • major refurbishment works or alterations to existing premises
  • obtaining new sites or expanding existing facilities to cater for business expansion
  • maximizing the value of an existing estate through the sale of disused premises or disposal of surplus land
  • acquiring new bases through corporate acquisitions
  • consolidating businesses from multiple locations into a single headquarter premises

If you are considering re-occupation of your premises during Covid-19 please see our RE: Occupy campaign for tips on what you need to consider.
