It directly employs 2,000,000 people, or about 6.8% of the workforce. According to the British Property Federation, the annual amount of rent collected is £26bn. In any year there are 92,000 commercial property deals with a value of £7bn yielding £1.76bn of tax.
Good Commercial Property lawyers are in great demand at the moment, so it is an excellent area of law to become involved with. It is an area of law that will be both challenging and rewarding to you, as it is diverse and constantly changing.
