Commercial Property

At Zermansky Solicitors we provide expert property advice at reasonable rates, tailored to meet your business needs.

Our Commercial Property Department is headed up by our Joseph McCullough who has over 10 years of experience dealing with commercial property transactions ranging from negotiating on multi-million pound property purchases to negotiating a lease of a small high street retail unit. Joseph offers a refreshing practical and pro-active approach to advising his clients, responding to their needs as and when required; an approach that matches Zermansky’s perfectly, forming strong and long lasting relationships with their clients.

When instructing Joseph you will have the benefit of his experience and technical expertise, and enjoy his plain-speaking and direct approach. Joseph values the fact that your time is valuable, and therefore tries to ensure that you remain focussed on the issues that matter to you, and the rest of the hard work is done by him behind the scenes.
