How we work is as important as what we do. For each property development project, one partner is responsible for each transaction and leads the team dealing with planning, CPO, procurement, funding, construction and disposals. Advice is given in a concise, solutions-driven manner. Effective project management is key to how we work to enable schemes to be delivered. Our property development lawyers are here to ensure your objectives are met.
Our property development clients include listed companies, private companies, public bodies and real estate funds. We act for land owners, developers and investors across a range of sectors. We understand the concerns and requirements of both public and private sector participants in the development process.
