Our reputation and relationships with financiers plays a big part in the success of new developments.
Big projects require the right lawyer. Experience is the difference.
We understand the property development sector requires specific legal advice.
You need a lawyer that you can rely on. Our unique team builds strong relationships with clients. Each member of our team has intimate knowledge of the various happenings on each project so can easily step in to assist if another team member is unavailable. This results in a seamless delivery of service to the client.
Property developers need lawyers who are responsive, experienced and across the entire project. Our team has a broad skill set and depth of experience that is highly unusual in the current legal climate. Where most lawyers typically specialise in a discrete and narrow area of law, our broad knowledge enables us to operate dynamically to provide quick and succinct legal advice. Whether you need advice on structuring, construction, planning or off the plan sales matters, we have it covered.
