The successful development of property assets requires bringing various skills together and forming one complete package. From originating the deal, overcoming legal, planning and regulatory obstacles, attracting the necessary funding, procuring the design and construction works, through to project delivery and sale, each of the pieces needs to be integrated with a careful commercial focus throughout.

The team draws together legal specialists to deliver a combined integrated service. This includes commercial property lawyers, planning lawyers, finance lawyers, construction lawyers and lawyers with relevant sector expertise.

The team has wide-ranging experience of acting across all asset classes, including office, retail, industrial, hospitality and leisure, education, renewable energy and specialist asset classes such as care homes. For each assignment we assemble the right team for the project, working collaboratively across the team and with our client and relevant stakeholders.
