Depth of experience

Our property development team embrace that development is complex and multi-faceted and that the current market is turbulent. We have a team whose focus is to get a deal over the line cost effectively, on time, providing commercially-sound advice and where possible bringing additive thinking to enhance the development appraisal.

It’s in the team’s DNA to think laterally and communicate with other retained consultants to look at the project holistically. With an eye to potential pitfalls and the need to future-proof ifor the green agenda the team will inform project milestone and delivery drivers. Core real estate lawyers work alongside their colleagues from Planning, Corporate, Construction and Banking.

Because we’ve worked in property development for so many years, we can spot the issues and identify solutions before they cost you time and money. Typically this may include complex issues that needed clearing up before a sale, negotiating and making recommendations for you, or drawing up land use possibilities on a site subject to years of historical planning breaches.

How can we help you?

Collaboration and advice

Collaboration is key for development sites as there are often different people involved at various stages throughout. We’ll advise a meeting as early as possible to discuss your plans and share information, identifying potential problem areas and coming up with ways to solve them.

If you’re looking to acquire or dispose of a plot, we’ll work with you to form a full land strategy at the outset. We’ll also advise on potential areas for delays or where additional costs may crop up, such as archaeological surveys and findings, or planning appeals.
