Our experienced commercial property solicitors in Sheffield act on major developments both on behalf of developers and funders at one end of the spectrum and act for small businesses and individuals in taking short term leases of premises at the other end. In all the work we do, however, we put the client first so that we give a client focused commercially aware service at a cost which is appropriate for the job.
We have particular strengths in the following areas:
We are committed to delivering the results that our clients want within timescales that they require and we are happy wherever possible to agree fees in advance. Clients appreciate that all work in the department is partner led and that we have a culture whereby we are available to our clients either by direct dial, email or mobile phones.
We operate very much within the commercial property market and talk on a regular basis with surveyors and commercial property lenders. We therefore appreciate market trends which informs the advice that we give and the way we structure and handle transactions. We therefore operate in a way which is appropriate to the market and not necessarily like a traditional solicitor’s office
Our Commercial Property team are recommended in the UK Legal 500 2020.

James Charlton - London & Associated Properties PLC
"I have worked with Lisa Davison over a number of years on my family's portfolio of commercial properties. She is an extremely competent professional, who has provided me with excellent, timely advice, not only on the property in question at the time, but generally on commercial property issues and I have found this very helpful. In addition she has very good communication skills and is a delight to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending her."
Angela Levitsky - Velangel Prospects
"Excellent property solicitors, understands our requirements and consistently delivers the right result."
Jonathan Vardy - Turner Investments
"Wake Smith were the best solicitors we have ever worked with for our commercial lease. They were the first to respond to our enquiry & were refreshingly brilliant in keeping us updated of progress every step of the way. We can’t recommend Laura Sanderson highly enough. She explained everything so clearly to us & was extremely thorough in negotiating the best possible lease for us. Now we’ve worked with Wake Smith we won’t be going anywhere else in future. A great experience from start to finish!"
Wildwood Artisan Gifts & Coffee Shop
“Working with Wake Smith was fantastic. Paul Gibbon in commercial property team advised us on the lease. He is a great operator and genuinely cared about the work and what he was doing. I never thought it was just a tick box exercise for him.”
Shane Beard - Firehouse Fitness
“Lisa Davison dealt with the case professionally, efficiently and with a friendly approachable manner. Often the legal side of things can seem daunting to non-lawyers so it was good to have a friendly person to give reassurance and explain things in plain English.”
Karen Wigglesworth - Hill House School
