First set up as a small barbershop, Stag has gone from strength to strength, growing into a fully fledged barber, bar and coffee house combo in Birmingham.

With the expansion came various challenges for which Stag required a range of legal services. 

Stag chose Regan Peggs as their solicitors, receiving support with lease negotiation, business rates and employment matters.

What Regan Peggs does for Stag


To support Stag’s move to the Custard Factory in Digbeth, Regan Peggs negotiated their lease which covered:

  • Extent of guarantors’ liability
  • Term
  • Break clauses
  • Rent, including a ‘gentle start’
  • Deposit
  • Rights over common parts / communal areas
  • Estate charges
  • Insurance
  • Permitted uses

Regan Peggs gave very careful thought to the extensive fit-out Stag was carrying out. As the interiors show, they did a beautiful job.


Business rates

The Council made a number of incorrect assumptions when calculating and demanding business rates.  Regan Peggs was able to resolve the issues and secured additional time for payment to be made.


Lease variation

There came a point at which the landlord needed to vary the lease. Regan Peggs assisted with the negotiation, attaining favourable terms for Stag.
