Multi-disciplinary experience in a dynamic market

Multi-disciplinary experience in a dynamic market

We have built a formidable knowledge base in the real estate sector as a result of our involvement in numerous projects and cases over many years.

We understand the issues affecting international landowners, property developers, occupiers, local councils and other authorities and investors and provide specialist support across the property life cycle.

Much of the work we do is transactional, involving finance, planning and ongoing occupier-tenant relations. We also have a dedicated real estate litigation team that uses all forms of dispute resolution, with particular prowess in the settlement of claims, adjudication and court action.

Whatever the nature and size of our client’s involvement in real estate, we can help them foresee and overcome legal issues and respond to problems as and when they arise.

Our keen commercial awareness also ensures that the advice we give is shaped to enable our clients to take advantage of the opportunities the market offers.
