Charlotte Ward

Charlotte helps clients to document, in a fast and trouble free manner, the new lettings they work so hard to achieve, and to acquire new assets for their portfolio which fit with their business plans, while also highlighting any risks.

Charlotte's experience in the retail sector means she has a clear understanding of what drives the development/investment and how to achieve a successful result efficiently.


Working with the in-house team at a major retailer, securing urgent warehousing on a tight timescale. This included a site visit and several late nights ensuring that the stock could arrive at midnight the evening we concluded the transaction. The client was extremely pleased that, despite the obstacles of a particularly difficult landlord, we were able to meet the timescales they had been set by its logistics team which it had initially described as unachievable.
