Knights plc is committed to delivering a full range of high quality client focused legal and town planning services across a variety of sectors. Our self storage team is spearheaded by Corporate partner, Lindsey Hemingway. Lindsey has worked extensively with the SSA UK to refine the suite of standard self storage agreements and the Manual of Advice and Procedures (MAP) and regularly delivers legal training sessions to SSA UK members. Lindsey is an experienced corporate and commercial lawyer, having spent many years as a partner in private practice acting predominantly for entrepreneurs as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. For many years she has acted for clients who are owners, operators and suppliers in the self storage sector, enabling her to develop specialist knowledge specific to these businesses, which is the foundation for her professional standing and strong reputation in this sector. Her work for clients in this sector has included corporate structuring and reorganisations, business sales and acquisitions, management buy-outs, joint ventures and shareholder relationships, funding and secured lending, commercial contracts and terms and conditions of trading.
She also leads the Knights team on transition to employee ownership, which can offer a succession solution for entrepreneurial businesses, providing a tax-advantaged exit for management shareholders whilst preserving the legacy business for the employees who have contributed to its success.
Colleagues in the wider self storage team cover the full spectrum of legal and professional services and are well versed in advising on the issues facing businesses involved in the self storage sector, including property acquisitions, disposals and lease arrangements, planning, employment, data protection and dispute resolution.
Knights is challenging and changing the delivery of legal and professional services, creating a versatile business environment, fit for the evolving needs of our commercial clients. Putting clients first means that we are driven by them. We have a commercial structure that delivers value and professionals that are aligned to a thriving culture of helping clients realise their ambitions. We think differently, act differently, make decisions differently and think long term. We are a team; taking great pride in all we do. Our professionals are collegiate and genuinely supportive of each other. We believe that this is a much better way of doing better business together.
