Experience

  • Advising on a contentious vacant possession scheme at a retail park which involved ensuring 30 tenants vacated by a certain date and a number of these tenants operated under protected leases.

  • Advising a fund manager on the lease renewals of anchor stores at a retail park and on the tactical use of court proceedings to obtain favourable terms for the renewal lease.
  • Obtaining an injunction against a trespasser at a retail park preventing them accessing the site in future.
