  • Commercial Property

    We know how integral it is to businesses for a property transaction to happen in a stress-free and timely fashion. Whether you are involved in a development and expansion of a business, the provision of a service or a return on an investment – we will act for you offering a highly efficient service.

    Our commercial solicitors’ team will guide you through the process, offering proactive and effective advice. We work hard to ensure that your transaction proceeds smoothly and that the best possible commercial outcome is arrived at.

    We can act for you in the following areas:

    • Buying, selling or renting your commercial property
    • Buying or selling your business
    • Taking a commercial lease

  • Property Disputes

    Jefferies has significant experience and expertise of advising upon the entire spectrum of property disputes, from issues arising out of the landlord and tenant relationship, to disputes concerning trusts of land and complex boundary disputes.

    Our specialist team regularly acts for clients in the County Court and High Court in all forms of property litigation. We offer targeted, effective advice to enable both individuals and businesses to resolve their disputes in the most pragmatic and cost effective way. Often litigation is not the most effective way to resolve a dispute and our team can provide advice and representation in mediations and other alternative dispute resolution methods. Jefferies acts for a number of developers, investment companies, property management agents, charities and private landlords.

    Our services include advising commercial landlords and tenants upon:

    • Dilapidations and improvements
    • Enforcing covenants
    • Enfranchisement where a landlord cannot be found (lease renewals and right to buy)
