Team advises in major supermarket deal

The Team at Le Gros Solicitors recently acted for West Sussex County Council Pension Fund on a £12m acquisition of a Tesco supermarket site at St Ives, Cornwall. The property was acquired by the Council subject to an operational lease in favour of Tesco. Rachel Wood, Pension Fund Strategist at West Sussex County Council, commented "This was a complicated purchase from a significant operation. I felt extremely confident with the work of Le Gros Solicitors who completed the detailed negotiations within ambitious timescales and in doing so helped to secure an excellent investment opportunity on behalf of the pension fund."
