Where we work

We employ the largest team of hotel specialists in Europe, providing professional brokerage and advisory services from offices in major cities across Europe. And because we’ve been doing this for over 80 years, we know our markets inside out. We work closely with our clients to guide and conclude transactions of any size. In the UK our sector expertise is inclusive of hotels plus restaurants and pubs; leisure; forecourts and convenience retail businesses; social care and elderly care; childcare and education facilities; dental practices and pharmacies. In 2015 we added an Asia Desk and have attracted a significant number of very active Asian investors keen on acquiring assets in Europe. 

Our professional services

We offer unrivalled insight, experience and expertise across a choice of services, including brokerage, consultancy, finance, development, investment, surveying, rent reviews, dispute resolution, corporate valuation, and turnaround & recovery. These services are all underpinned by our in-depth market intelligence and leading-edge technology. We’re accredited surveyors (RICS), the most respected regulator in Europe - so you can trust in our professionalism.

What makes us tick

Businesses are about people, so relationships matter to us. We bring an integrity and transparency to business which can be all too rare – and that’s why people trust us. Our clients will attest to our genuine desire to help achieve their objectives, our attention to detail and our tireless hard work on their behalf. We understand that buying a business can bring its own pressures and strains; needs change, plans may need to be adjusted, and opportunities can come and go. But we’re always here, a constant, flexible and reliable force you can count on.
