Purchasing, building or leasing new premises

Whether your business is looking to buy, build or lease commercial premises in Fulham, Chelsea, Putney, Hammersmith or beyond, our dedicated commercial property team will help make the process as swift and smooth as possible.

Get in touch as soon as you find your ideal property – and before you conclude your negotiations with the agent – or better still, before negotiations even start. There is so much more to a property negotiation than the cost per square foot, and our specialised assistance could help you get the right deal and save you a huge amount of money.
