Tees Incorporating Wortley Byers

Work Department

Commercial property.

Position

Consultant

Graeme qualified as a solicitor in 1983 and has worked in the Chelmsford office for the whole of his career.  He specialises in commercial property work and it would be fair to say he tends to handle the complex and unusual transactions. Quite often the sale or purchase will involve several parties and negotiation with two or three firms of solicitors, an accountant, banker and surveyor.

In recent years he has increasingly worked with insolvency practitioners on time critical disposals.

Since 1995 he has been responsible for a portfolio of telecom contracts. He has seen this business sector grow and the contractual provisions become more complicated. This area of work requires close attention to detail and a careful review strategy carried out in conjunction with the client’s surveyor.

Graeme acts for several small development companies typically building developments of up to 10 houses or apartments.

He has also built up quite a client base in the leisure sector with pub owners, hoteliers, nightclub owners and owners of golf clubs. Graaeme acts for two local golf clubs owned by their members and a football club playing at the highest level of non-league football.
