We provide expert advice on:

* The acquisition and disposal of property

Commercial property

The Russells commercial property team have acted for clients on the development, management, financing and disposal of many properties both in London and across the UK. Our specialists have expertise in all commercial property sectors including retail, office, industrial, and leisure.

We act for clients on the acquisition and disposal of freehold and leasehold commercial premises including the preparation and negotiation of new leases, their renewal, extension and variation.

Residential property

The Russells conveyancing team can help you whether you are buying or selling a property or refinancing your home or investment portfolio. We represent buyers and sellers of flats and houses both within the capital and elsewhere.

When people move house, they want to know that the conveyancing element of the transaction is carried out on time and within budget. Our primary aim in helping you to buy or sell your house is to make the entire process easier for you. We aim to work within a competitive fee structure and keep you informed of costs throughout every stage of the transaction.

We work in partnership with other property professionals including surveyors, agents and lenders to ensure that our clients have access to a comprehensive range of professional advice.

If you would like clear, practical advice on how to proceed with the sale, purchase or investment in your commercial or residential property, please contact Peter Smith on 020 7439 8692 or email him at
