Facilities Management lawyers

In managing their assets, businesses face an uphill battle as they weigh the growing demand for a high quality built environment (with the requisite services) against cost and operational flexibility.

Facilities management, whether in-house or outsourced, plays a key part in securing business objectives, finding efficiencies and driving growth strategies.

We assess each client’s needs, whether they are for specific properties, maintenance programmes for classes of assets or complete packages to drive consistency and cost efficiencies across multiple jurisdictions.

We can help you ascertain the real cost of facilities management to your business and devise and implement successful strategies that are tailored to address both the current and future service needs of your business including space management, maintenance for ageing assets or data security.

We advise on and draft industry form facilities management contracts and associated guidance notes with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) providing industry thought leadership that promotes best practice solutions. 

We take a sector-based lifecycle approach to real estate and construction projects, from inception to completion to operation. This enables us to take innovate approaches, promote early stakeholder engagement and develop communication strategies to create a more collaborative facilities management culture that will deliver long term cost-effective results.

Our extensive experience of advising on facilities management issues from public and private sector aspects as well as client and contractor sides gives us a wider perspective in presenting and procuring facilities management arrangements.

Across facilities management projects, we use a range of models tailored to suit the nuances of a property or portfolio. The essential driver is always identifying, co-ordinating and integrating the complexities of particular business requirements (recognising and managing various internal or external stakeholder interests) in the commercial negotiations to achieve best value alongside an appropriately allocated risk position with clearly measurable deliverables.
