Commercial Law

We have at EDC Lord a very specialised team of experienced solicitors dealing with Commercial Property Conveyancing and Commercial Lease Renewals. As always, technology is used to enable us to provide a fast, efficient and proactive service to business clients, which is essential for our client's businesses to expand and flourish.

Over many years of development in this area, we have developed an expertise that we believe is second to none and which has been recognised by many large Plc Companies instructing us in their property matters.

Landlord and Tenant

The law with respect to issues around being a landlord and having tenants is continuously changing. Our Commercial Property team are skilled at dealing with both contentious and non-contentious aspects of landlord and tenant law and they remain up to date with the latest legal developments. We provide a comprehensive range of services in this area including:
• New leases and lease negotiations • Assignment and sub-letting • Assured Shortholds Tenancies • Enforcement of covenants • Forfeiture • Issuing proceedings for the possession of premises • Issues arising Under the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 • Landlord's consents • Lease renewal • Leasehold enfranchisements • Recovery of service charges • Recovery of possession • Removal of unauthorised occupants • Rent reviews/rent arrears • Schedules of dilapidations

Commercial Litigation

Partner Andrew Isitt heads EDC Lord & Co's litigation department. Together with our litigation executives and Secretary Lyn McChesney, the litigation team deal with a wide range of contentious business, including commercial and residential landlord and tenant claims including repossessions; property disputes (including boundary and right-of- way claims), consumer and general contract issues; professional negligence; building disputes, debt recovery (in particular commercial debts and estate agency commission claims) and employment disputes.

The team also provides advice to keep clients on the right side of the law by advising on and drafting employment contracts and Terms and Conditions of business; and in the fields of Competition Law; Data Protection; and Consumer contract law. It is our firm belief that prevention is better than cure, and that good advice, taken early, can lead to substantial savings in time, cost and the disruption to business which disputes inevitably cause. A typical UK business nowadays has to comply with 900 statutory regulations. With Parliament passing around 50 new Acts and around 3500 new sets of Regulations every year, the tide of new legislation seems endless, and the task of keeping abreast of it is daunting. So, why not trust your problem to the professionals and let us take the strain off your shoulders? We deliver peace of mind and integrity as standard.

We aim to provide you with high quality, cost-effective solutions tailored to your business needs. Most of all, you can expect experienced and commercially aware lawyers who understand your business. Our clients range from start up companies to large institutions. Our work ranges from modest to complex transactions. We provide a range of services including:

• Asset and share sale and purchase
• Corporate finance
• Corporate advisory
• Private equity
• Joint ventures
• Partnerships
• Secured and unsecured lending
• Commercial contracts
• Insolvency
• Intellectual property and information technology
