Our team of experts are the first port of call for many local authority in-house legal representatives when faced with major real estate, planning and regeneration schemes.
Our planning, real estate and procurement solicitors work very closely with the in-house lawyers to ensure they fully understand the political and commercial drivers for each project.
We can lead and pull together a very experienced team to provide a comprehensive service and deliver positive results within set timescales.
We advise on a full range of real estate and regeneration projects: combining new build and refurbishment, private housing, right to buy and community use areas, estate finance including many formal joint ventures with the private sector.
Fundamentally, we see our key role as using our knowledge and expertise to identify ways to ensure each project is successful, draws on best practice, innovates and becomes an exemplar for other projects.
