Case studies

Premier Marinas: we advised on purchasing extensive land and waterside site from administration at Noss on River Dart. This involved complex negotiations with the Duchy of Cornwall and the Dart Valley steam railway (a quoted heritage railway company)

HCR Limited: we advised on the assignment of a very large portfolio of properties to a new provider under a contract to provide accommodation services to the Ministry of Defence.
