Serra is a specialist Real Estate lawyer in the Drinks, Hospitality and Leisure team.
Her practice includes advising on acquisitions and disposals of pubs, licensed restaurants, late night bars and nightclubs. This includes dealing with all aspects associated with the sale of a trading site, for example employees, licensing, stock, and furniture and fixtures.
- Acting for the seller on the disposal of a high profile pub to Chinese investors. The transaction faced delays due to the buyer’s funding issues but was completed through continued pressure on the buyer.
- Acting for the seller on the disposal of a Soho nightclub, including the transfer of a premises licence and SEV licence. The transaction was the key to funding an acquisition opportunity for the client, but it was faced with planning and licensing issues which the buyer wanted resolving prior to completion, and therefore threatened to delay completion. Through negotiation, the contract was exchanged free of conditions and completion was achieved on the desired date.
