BTO has a “strong reputation for retail work” (Chambers UK). Our retail team takes a holistic approach to meeting the needs of our UK and international retail clients.

When purchasing or leasing a retail property we take a very commercial approach and ensure that we weigh up all your legal and other practical concerns. We pride ourselves on ensuring that we meet your entry dates for shopfitters etc. and liaise with all members of your team to guarantee that all legalities are completed efficiently and on time whilst having due regard to legal points.

Our large portfolio of retail clients means that we are sensitive to the issues that retailers face, whether on high streets, in shopping centres, in retail parks, in outlet centres or on the web. Our lawyers understand the whole retail business, not just shop leases.

Let us reduce your risks with a tailored package of retail services and costs.
