Our clients trust us to help them navigate the complexities of property transactions and to provide clear, commercial advice from the outset.

Sales and acquisitions

We act for owners, occupiers, investors and developers to support the sale and acquisition process and are skilled and experienced in streamlining property transactions and providing clear, commercial advice throughout.  Our team has a considerable track record securing new premises as well as supporting organisations with their disposals.


We advise landlords and tenants from a broad range of sectors on their commercial leasing requirements.  Our track record includes advising tenants of some of Scotland’s largest and most significant retail developments.  We also work closely with other professional advisors such as surveyors to provide a seamless, coordinated service for clients.

Strategic land

We have considerable expertise advising on strategic land matters on behalf of utilities, landowners, businesses and communities.  We have led a number of pre-project due diligence reviews of strategic land interests, both in mixed developments and energy portfolios and have vast experience of strategic land development projects and coordinating multidisciplinary teams across our firm.

We have a strong track record of successful deals involving contaminated land, its remediation as well as sale and lease. We act for industrial users, strategic land and brownfield investors as well as infrastructure providers and advise on minerals extraction, option agreements and the impact of these rights on proposed developments and investments.
