Market-leading property developers rely on our commercially astute legal approach to help them deliver significant projects that shape our cities and communities.
The complexity of development and regeneration projects has vastly increased in recent years, reflecting a highly regulated environment subject to changing tax laws, environmental regulations and planning restrictions, and the increased involvement of both government and international bidders in the market. The integrated approach of our real estate lawyers with experts in projects and construction, environment and planning and tax law allows us to offer seamless advice considering the impact and integration of the various legal requirements.
Our lawyers advise both private and public sector clients in a range of roles from developers, project sponsors, financiers and contractors, to end user tenants and facilities managers. This varied work provides us with unique insight into the intricacies of development and regeneration projects, enabling us to offer commercially focused solutions at every stage.
By focusing on understanding our clients and their needs, we are able to develop new legal products to incentivise better environmental performance and more integrated, sustainable communities.
