As specialists in planning and environmental matters we have expertise in site acquisitions, conditional contracts, planning permissions, and leases.
We have also represented many landowners, investors and occupiers, ensuring they secure the best terms possible, and this means obtaining value for money and the negotiation of robust contractual terms with property developers, contractors and suppliers.
