Development


Real estate development is core to our practice.  We help organisations of all types to create a better built environment for people to live, study, work, relax, socialise and enjoy their surroundings (or increasingly a combination) advising on all aspects of development. 

From urban regeneration schemes, through to major infrastructure projects, our specialist lawyers support you through every step of the development process.

We are passionate about helping to facilitate the creation of place and our work in the development sector gives us a distinctive perspective we believe benefits our clients. We work with developers, contractors, operators, funders and investors, from both the public and the private sector to support their development projects taking time to understand our client's business to ensure we know what they need to achieve from a project. From inception of an idea, acquisition of a site, partnering with others and delivery, to operation and sales, we have a committed, knowledgeable and driven team to help you with whatever development scheme you have.

We understand the different drivers of those involved in a development project. We understand the need for the asset to be fundable and the end product to be marketable. We understand the need to manage risk and cost. And we know how to get a deal done. We can help you with all aspects of the development cycle; from heads of terms for new opportunities, through due diligence, and contract negotiation, to completion. Our team has extensive expertise covering development of all types of residential led schemes including private sale, build-to-rent, student, care and retirement living, alongside 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 a stronger, broader real estate practice, with the wider market intelligence and knowledge to help you. Our large, national team is well equipped to help you deliver your organisation's development programme bringing together experts from disciplines including property, construction, planning, regulatory, governance, finance and tax, which, when combined with strong project management, helps us to deliver transactions in line with your goals.
