Dealing with commercial property can be one of the most interesting though challenging areas of work and good commercial property lawyers are always in demand. However, it is not just ‘case management’ like some residential work has become, and demands knowledge of law and commercial awareness. Many aspects are crucially different and this course will help demystify the differences.
