Legal Advice on Buying or Selling a Shop

Law Firm Advising on the Purchase or Sale of Retail Businesses

The purchase or sale of a shop, supermarket, or retail outlet by freehold or leasehold can be a complex business, and specialist legal advice from a commercial retail solicitor will normally be necessary to make sure you get the right deal.
