Lewis Craig represent a broad spectrum of retail, restaurant, and leisure operators, as well as acting on behalf of landlords, investors and developers.
Our agency division deals with the acquisition and disposal of leasehold and freehold premises, including Shops, Restaurants, Gyms and Corporate Head Offices.
We service many of our clients on a nationwide basis, effectively taking on the role of an outsourced property department and principal point of contact to the property industry.
We have considerable experience of assisting in the development of new concepts through to advising well established retailers and restaurant operators on their site expansion programmes, in both the franchised and non-franchised sectors.
Our active acquisition service encompasses a full understanding of each clients operation, assistance in expansion strategy, site identification and negotiation, agreeing terms, liaising closely with solicitors and other professionals within the team through to completion of a transaction.
Our highly effective disposal service is available to both landlords with vacant property seeking to create secure investments or dispose of buildings and to tenants with leasehold or freehold property surplus to requirements.
A further area that we are actively involved in is working with insolvency practitioners in advising and implementing disposal strategy in order to achieve maximum value.
