Our award winning team of dedicated construction and engineering law specialists are committed to providing the highest standard of advice in all aspects of project development and at all stages of the construction process

We have an established reputation for our development advice in both the private and public sectors - being particularly known for our commercial sense, efficient service and the efforts that we make in acquiring a good understanding of how our clients run their businesses.

Our clients benefit from our extensive knowledge of all aspects of development work - from land assembly/acquisition, through environmental issues, funding, planning, the procurement of the design and construction to ultimate occupation, letting or sale.

We are retained by clients to give strategic advice on the procurement of developments at the early planning stages, on how best to procure the commercial viability of the development through the construction arrangements to maximise returns on value of the development for the client, advice on protection of the interests of and requirements of the client and third parties who may acquire an interest or have an interest in the development - whether that be through joint venture or funding arrangements or for investment purchasers as examples and advice on development covenants in third party contracts and facility arrangements. We also provide advice (where relevant) on EU procurement restrictions and the adaption of industry standard building contracts and/or appointments or the creation of client project specific bespoke client contractual arrangements to reflect the commercial requirements of the development, as well as negotiation of contracts with those involved in the design and construction and funding of the developments.
