Led by Alison Taylor, our commercial property team has had an exceptional year having advised on many matters which have had a transaction value of over £1 million.  As well as general sales, acquisitions, landlord and tenant and investment work, it regularly advises on matters within various specialist sectors, including the creative industries and retail and leisure.

Its approach to client care and prompt, efficient service makes it stand above its competitors.  It has a wide variety of good quality property work and a substantial team which has the breadth of experience to provide a bespoke, quality service.

Beyond its client work, it also hosts an annual CPD seminar, which is attended by clients and property experts from across the Thames Valley. This is now a permanent fixture in the property industry’s calendar.
