Real Estate Occupiers

Our real estate occupiers team represents major office occupiers, professional businesses, hoteliers, restaurateurs and retailers, often with national portfolios, in their occupation requirements.

We advise on the full range of tenant work, ranging from a start-up business’s first office through to major head office moves.

Our deep understanding of the business sectors in which our occupier clients operate enables us to focus on what matters most to them from a business and operational perspective, so that we identify and implement practical solutions tailored to their specific requirements.

We help our clients to enjoy a seamless real estate service by working closely with the tenant’s team of property advisers, including surveyors, fit-out contractors, consultants and project managers to meet target dates.
If a client is setting up operations in the UK for the first time, we are delighted to assist them by introducing them to our network of recommended and trusted professionals.

After acquisition, our expertise in real estate management and, should it be required, real estate dispute resolution, helps our occupier clients to maintain effective relationships with their landlords.

If you have any questions or queries please call Stephen on +44 (0)20 3036 7231 or email

“The team gives great advice, and is very dynamic and knowledgeable. They’re very approachable with huge knowledge and experience.”
