Our focus

We are able to provide clear and structured advice in relation to what can often be a complex and specialist area. We are able to do this through our acquired knowledge and understanding in dealing with a multitude of transactions and clients in this field.

The team has dealt with a significant number of telecoms leases acting for land owners granting leases to a spectrum of network operators including Vodafone and Orange/T-mobile (Everything Everywhere).

We are also experienced in the renewable energy market and Feed-in tariff leases (solar photovoltaic (PV) FITs installations).

We understand through our experience of dealing with a variety of different property types, from agricultural land and football stadiums to office and high street shop roof tops, the legal and practical issues that can arise.

We are also familiar with the commercial and financial arrangements underlying these types of leases including fee-sharing arrangements (telecoms) and buy-back arrangements (FIT leases).
