Ubbink Reaches New Heights In Larger Premises

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

The Legal 500 recognised Commercial Property Team at Wilson Browne Solicitors were delighted to act for Ubbink (U.K.) Limited in their recent acquisition of a new Lease of a 24,042 square foot Unit at 2 Mansard Close, Northampton.

Partner, Tom Warrender, led the Team at Wilson Browne Solicitors acting for Ubbink and the matter recently reached a satisfactory conclusion.

Ubbink had reached out to Tom at an early stage when they were looking at other premises.

Tom was able to introduce them to Rob Keeves and Charles Church of Underwoods who were able to assist in negotiating terms on a new Lease. Having looked at a couple of properties, terms were finally agreed for the Property at Mansard Close and Underwoods successfully negotiated some fantastic terms for the Client and Tom was then able to act in dealing with getting the Lease and associated documents in place within the Client’s required timeframe. Underwoods were also able to assist via Bill Crowther, in putting together the Schedule of Condition to limit the Client’s repairing liability under the terms of the Lease.

As well as dealing with the legal complexities that a matter such as this can bring, it also required clear communication between all parties, including working with the Landlord’s Agent, Joe Smith of Drake Commercial, to ensure that those all important timescales were met.

Tom commented “it was a pleasure to act for Ubbink in this matter. It is always good to be involved in projects at a very early stage and, in being involved so early on, I have seen the hard work and dedication that Steve Shore and his Team have put in to getting this deal in place. This is a very significant investment for Ubbink and there are certainly exciting times ahead for them!”

Steve Shore commented “moving the UK business for Ubbink was an exhausting minefield of technicalities, way above my remit so how delighted was I that I struck a partnership with Wilson Browne and in-particular Tom Warrender, his knowledge, drive and understanding was absolutely key with great levels of communication and Charles Church from Underwoods was also vital, I have learnt that when you get into something like moving a business lock, stock and barrel, involve yourself with a very good, strong team as it pays off, I am very proud of the end result and our business will now go to the next level very quickly.”

Ubbink can trace its history (across Europe) back to 1896 and this move will see the Company move to new, larger premises.
