Property development and regeneration

Building agreements

Successful property development depends on the carefully coordinated involvement of land owner, contractors, consultants and providers of finance.

The procurement of a construction process can at first appear daunting, but our team of experts will provide reliable legal support to help bring your project to fruition.

The team is familiar with the commercial requirements of other parties and how these can be implemented in deliverable building agreements.

All our solicitors have significant experience in all aspects of construction and engineering projects, drafting bespoke forms of contractual arrangements and advising on the main forms of building and engineering contracts (JCT, NEC, MF1, PPC2000).

We act for a broad range of clients across the industry, including major developers, financial institutions, employers and contractors.
