Commercial Property Development

We act on a wide variety of property development projects. We particularly enjoy working on innovative or unusual schemes. Our clients are involved in projects country-wide, from a pre-let forward-funded industrial project in Yorkshire to a large mixed-use site in the west country being developed on a joint venture basis with a national house builder.

Property development projects typically require the involvement of lawyers from a wide range of disciplines such as property litigation, construction, taxation, environmental & planning. Our lawyers have the necessary experience and expertise in these areas so that we can provide a complete team capable of covering all of the requirements of property development projects. We are also experienced in providing asset management services for projects and on leading teams of clients’ other advisors.

Recent work

  • We are currently advising clients in relation to a proposed eco-town, dealing with the site assembly, conditional agreements and land options in connection with its development.
  • We are acting on the largest mixed-use development in the London Borough of Haringey since the 1940s.
  • We have advised on a number of projects for a large property company including two complex development acquisitions, both involving hotels.
