Offering Pragmatic, Commercial Advice

Keith Griffiths, Commercial Property Specialist

Commercial Property Transactions

Sales and Acquisitions

No two commercial property transactions are ever the same and we are adept at tailoring our service to meet your needs and the requirements of the transaction. We can assist you with the sale and purchase of all types of freehold and leasehold commercial property ranging from bare land to retail shops, offices, investment properties and industrial sites.

Landlord and Tenant

We negotiate leases, together with a full range of property management services including licences to assign, sublet or carry out works, lease renewals and surrenders. Commercial leases are complex documents and the importance of seeking advice on the terms of a lease cannot be overstated. We encourage our clients to involve us at the heads of terms stage in negotiating new leases, as a clear set of terms which are agreed and understood by both parties at the outset can help to save a great deal of time and stress in the latter stages of the transaction.

Property Development

Amicus Commercial supports clients in the sale and purchase of land for commercial and residential development. We are experienced in dealing with all aspects of the acquisition of land for development including the negotiation of conditional contracts, option and pre-emption agreements, planning agreements and highways and other infra-structure related agreements. We can also assist with promotion and collaboration agreements.


Property Finance

If you are seeking secured lending, from private secured loans to institutional lending and re-finance projects, we can help. Securing finance for a property acquisition or development project, or simply re-financing existing property assets, can be a long and stressful process. Lenders will, as a matter of course, expect a full due diligence exercise to be undertaken and are generally risk averse. We guide you through each stage of the process and strive to make the process as painless and straightforward as possible.

Business Sales and Acquisitions

Our property lawyers work closely with our corporate team in handling the property aspects of business transactions to ensure the process is smooth and seamless for our clients, and in property disputes, upporting our litigation team in dealing with all types of dispute including landlord and tenant matters, overage payments, restrictive covenants, planning and rights of way and light.

The right advice from your experienced local commercial property lawyer, when buying or selling property, is vital to ensure that no stone is left unturned. Protecting one of your largest investments is why it is so important that you seek the right legal advice.

Growing Your Business

We Support Start-Ups With Legal Services

Start-ups require very different advice from more established businesses. From a difference in language, amount of support and fees.

Each of our lawyers have experience in all areas of the business life cycle and many of them are directors, company secretaries and landlords in their own right. This gives them a commercial edge over the ‘cradle to grave’ lawyers who go into law at university, into a legal practice as a trainee and work their way up the legal ladder. What this does not normally give them is the commercial insight and nous that you, as a business person, need.

Business start-ups need simple and easy to understand advice on so many aspects of the legal and business world. They need solid building blocks upon which they can build their businesses and give them the best chances of survival in the dog eat dog world of business. We arrange informal networking events (usually in pubs and over curries) for our clients to bring them together in a co-operative environment.

We have put together packages to make setting up a business affordable – from the simplest of off-the-shelf company formations to bespoke employment services for those first few employees. Some of these packages are fixed price, others need ongoing implementation and fees can be paid over a number of months or on-going over a year.


We Support Growing Businesses

For those in growing businesses your needs will certainly be different. Amicus Law Commercial give you the bespoke advice you need to get to where you want to be.

From assisting in investment and funding through to business disputes and exits, commercial law can be a minefield and however carefully you plan, things can go wrong; recessions happen, staff bring employment claims, customers would rather not pay you. With planning and proper handling, resolutions can usually be found to most of business life’s problems.

We Support Mature Businesses

A mature business need careful handling, management and support. Capitalising the value built up in a business over many years and securing a smooth transition of control to the next generation to take the business forward can often be fraught with emotional and practical issues. Planned effectively, the process can be managed to ensure all parties understand what is happening at each stage and how it impacts on them, to ensure a positive outcome.

We understand all the vital stages of your business development – all of which require different approaches – so wherever you are in the ‘hatch, match or dispatch’ cycle of your business, we are here to help you.
