Construction development


Development is a core part of our Real Estate practice. We work with our clients to create the built environment – whether that be places for people to live, to study, to work, or to relax, socialise and enjoy their surroundings, or more commonly a combination. We advise on all aspects of the development spectrum - whether that be mixed use, commercial, residential, entertainment venues, hotels, retail, urban regeneration schemes or infrastructure. Our specialist lawyers can support you and advise you on every step of the development process.

We are passionate about place making and our work and thought leadership in the development sector gives us a unique perspective that truly benefits our clients. We work with developers, contractors, operators, funders and investors, from both the private and public sectors to support their development projects. We take time to understand our clients businesses to ensure that we understand what they wish to achieve from a project. From inception of an idea, though to acquisition of a site, to partnering with others and through delivery and on to operation and sales, we have a committed, knowledgeable and driven team to help you with whatever development scheme that you have.

We can help you with all aspects of the development cycle; be that with concepts, heads of terms for new opportunities, due diligence, procurement structure, contract drafting and negotiation, to delivery. We are known for our commercial acumen and no nonsense approach, and have an expert understanding of the industry, funders requirements and exit strategies. We understand the need to manage risk and cost. We know how to get a deal done.

Our development team has a wide area of expertise covering development in all sectors. We specialise in advising on residential led schemes including the delivery of private sale, Built to Rent, student, care and retirement living, alongside the delivery of affordable housing models. We advise on strategic land opportunities and commercial development projects including the creation of business parks and retail sites and our leisure specialists regularly advise on the creation of new places to shop, eat and relax. Our diversity across the sector means that we have an exceptionally strong and broad real estate practice, and can use that wider market intelligence and knowledge to help our clients.
