Real estate lawyers for property developers.

Bespoke legal advice. Here for all aspects of commercial and residential development.

Your lawyers when you’re looking to develop property.

You need projects completed on time, within budget, and with minimal risk. We can help you get where you need to be.

Your development project may be simple and fast-paced, or a more complex multi-sector build. Whether you’re developing student accommodation, build to rent, infrastructure (e.g. data centres and renewable energy), residential, commercial office, retail or even sportsgrounds; we can help.

First things first, we get to know you, your challenges and how you’d like us to work. We understand the issues arising from development projects. We know the sectors you operate in. This is how we provide commercially attuned legal advice and find solutions, not problems.

Key areas of support include:

  • Joint ventures

    We can help with structuring both incorporated and unincorporated joint ventures. Our collaborative approach aims to better reflect commercial objectives and exit strategies in a cost effective way.

  • Promotion agreements

    We advise private, commercial and institutional landowners and developers on the promotion and disposal of land for development. Our advice helps our clients maximise value from developments and overcome issues of access, ransom and equalisation.

  • Roads and services

    We advise on all aspects of section 38, section 278 or section 104 agreements to ensure there are no delays in construction or impediments to the funding and operation of the development.

  • Planning and section 106 agreements

    Planning is critical to the financial viability of any development. Our team can guide you through the process and negotiate any required planning agreements.

  • Buying, funding and selling sites

    We carry out in depth due diligence of development sites and highlight any issues which may compromise the successful funding, construction and/or sale.

  • Land options and conditional contracts

    Our team has extensive experience advising on all forms of land options and conditional contracts. We help to ensure the commercial objectives of the deal are reflected and provide clarity on time critical obligations, acceptable planning conditions and payment structures.
