Development


The aim of any commercial developer or landowner is to maximise the return which can be achieved from the development of the property.

This may be the construction of new buildings on an empty site, the redevelopment of existing buildings, or anything in between.

Developers need expert lawyers who understand the legal and commercial objectives of any development and whose approach is focused on problem solving to enable the development to proceed.

We understand option agreements, land promotion agreements and overage/clawback.

By bringing together lawyers with expertise in site acquisition and disposal, construction law, planning, property finance, environmental law and health and safety, we are able to work with our clients to seamlessly deliver even the most complicated and challenging development projects.
