Projects and development

Our team of experts have the knowledge and experience in projects and development to help your business to deliver complex schemes with multiple stakeholders.

We act for a range of developers, contractors, funders and public bodies, advising on the appropriate procurement and contract structure, helping our clients to achieve their objectives while mitigating the key risks. Our experience gives us key insights into the current market position on key risks and allows us to anticipate funder requirements.

Construction projects of any scale can be complex and the competing demands of various stakeholders mean that practical, commercial legal advice based on a wealth of knowledge and experience is invaluable.  We are experienced in all aspects of projects and development, from planning, funding, design and construction, to post-construction contract advice and ongoing support. Sectors we work in include commercial, industrial, student accommodation, PRS, retail and leisure, public, infrastructure, utilities, waste and energy.

We advise on the selection and negotiation of all major forms of contract, such as JCT, NEC, FIDIC, IChemE and bespoke agreements to best suit your project, with a detailed understanding of requirements such as payment security, professional appointments, warranties, bonds and parent company guarantees.

We understand the need for the thorough, commercial and timely legal advice to ensure that whatever your role, your project is supported by people with an understanding of the demands and pressures of getting a project from inception to completion.
