Our specialist property solicitors have many years’ combined experience in the law relating to property development, and we act for both developers and landowners.
We are proud to offer a full and comprehensive service from start to finish, including providing sound and practical legal advice, drafting all documentation and delivering robust representation whenever necessary.
Development & Disputes
We will also handle property development disputes, advising upon the best course of action to limit to the greatest possible degree the impact upon your commercial activities.
Attaining the right legal advice
Property development is complex by its very nature, with many legal issues that must be considered throughout the entire project cycle. It is therefore essential to have the right level of legal support from the outset, to ensure that all details of the project are firmly in order and that your obligations are fully met.
We work with developers on projects of all sizes, from single plots to multi-million-pound ventures. We will work in partnership with you to gain a thorough understanding of your objectives and ensure that the entire project cycle runs smoothly, looking after your commercial interests throughout the process.
Changing with the property landscape
As development continues at an unprecedented level, especially within London, the changing landscape will often have an impact on neighbouring properties. If the neighbouring owners are unable to accept these changes, for example, if there is a breach of the right of light, this may give rise to a property development dispute.

It is important to weigh up the costs and the benefits to any venture before you invest, and commercial property is no different. Although the residential properties are what usually springs to mind when investment is mentioned, it is important to consider that commercial properties also have their benefits.
