Whatever business you are involved in, property issues are often high on the agenda.

And for those in the leisure and tourism trade, land and property play a crucial part of any business plan.

So when it comes to legal advice, it’s vital to speak to the right people. You need lawyers who understand the leisure industry – and are close to the local business community.

You might be a brewery with plans to expand; you may be refurbishing your hotel or pub which will involve a change to your licence; a holiday park looking for strategic support; or a restaurant owner wanting a smooth transaction on a new property purchase –whatever your situation, getting the right legal advice is a must.
