Housebuilding & residential development

Advising housebuilders on residential developments and regeneration projects across the UK

Specialising in strategic development land and urban regeneration we help housebuilders, developers and landowners realise the commercial opportunities that urban, coastal and rural site development can offer.

With years of experience advising private and public sector housebuilder clients on some of the UK’s largest residential developments and regeneration projects, we’re able to leverage our considerable knowledge and strong relationships to secure commercial agreements and settle drafting more quickly and efficiently.

We offer the full range of services to support you from initial acquisition through to disposal of a site. Our specialist land acquisition lawyers work closely with other disciplines such as planning, construction, property litigation, corporate, banking and tax in order to bring you comprehensive but concise advice.

We also have lawyers specialising in employment law, health and safety and regulatory law who understand the particularities of the housebuilding sector and can provide you with specific advice as and when you require.
