A consultative and partner-led approach to the business of retail property.

Strutt & Parker's Retail team has built close relationships with many leading landlords, retailers, investors and developers, and together we have been involved with some of the biggest retail schemes of recent times.

Clients value our integrated service, as it enables us to advise on lettings, sales and acquisitions, asset management, development funding and professional services. We also deliver continuity, often staying with an asset throughout its life. We specialise in shopping centres, high street shops, retail warehousing, leisure and supermarket property. The team is focused on delivering high-quality research-led advice and are dedicated to assisting our clients in making their assets perform.

Our track record includes retail projects of all types and sizes throughout the UK and Ireland. We have a team specialising in the West End, Mid-Town and City of London. By working closely with our colleagues from the wider commercial team, we are also able to provide a joined-up service for clients who have interests in mixed-use developments.
