- Leasehold transaction within the mineral sector
Acted as the lead lawyer for a global aggregate client acquiring a 50 year lease for an asphalt plant. The agreement was complex as it was conditional on surrendering an existing environmental permit, satisfactory planning permission and submitting a non-material amendment to a solar farm planning permission on the neighbouring land. The matter was time critical as it was linked to the demolition of an existing asphalt plant and it involved coordinating with the client’s internal planning team as well as the firm’s planning team.
- Granting leases to new tenants and dealing with the sale of the fully let office building
Acted for a property investor in granting a number of leases to their tenants in an office building. Once the office building was fully let, being the lead lawyer in dealing with the £6.5 million disposal of the office building.
- Leasehold transactions including an Agreement for Works
Acted for a global pharmaceutical company on a range of leasehold transactions including drafting and negotiating a complex Agreement for Works and Variation of the Lease on a large retail park. The Agreement was complicated due to both parties carrying out works and the client trading throughout. The matter involved liaising with the client’s internal stakeholders to ensure the client’s business would not be impacted by the works.
