Development Work lawyers

Whether your development is commercial, residential, mixed use or of a regeneration nature, we are involved in some of the most significant projects across the world. We act for the full range of clients including owners, developers, funders, institutional investors, forward funding purchasers and tenants as well as the full array of construction industry players.

A core part of our real estate development and regeneration team that includes experts in the fields of planning, sustainability, environmental law, development finance, insurance, tax, facilities management and dispute resolution, we deliver a cradle to grave sector-based seamless service throughout and beyond the development lifecycle from planning and procurement to operation and maintenance.

Our lawyers sit on key industry committees that include the Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) and Scottish Building Contracts Committee (SBCC) drafting committees and the Construction Industry Council Liability Panel. We regularly speak at conferences across the globe on International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) contracts.

We understand the requirements of the built environment – not just in terms of the construction ‘musts’ concerning time, money and quality of delivery but also the opportunities and challenges the increasing globalisation of the rapidly evolving investment market brings.

We focus on the issues our clients face on a day-to-day basis. Our sector approach gives us unparalleled expertise in our specialist areas: commercial property; urban regeneration; hospitality and leisure; retirement accommodation; education and student accommodation; research laboratories and facilities; information technology datacentres; and production, distribution and logistics.
