Our barristers are renowned for their expertise in cases relating to property development.  They are often assisted by being able to draw upon cross-disciplinary expertise in other areas of law in which we specialise (especially planning law and public law).  Our barristers have appeared in many of the highest-value and most legally-challenging cases concerning developments.

We represent clients requiring assistance in relation to every stage of the development process.  At the stage of site acquisition, we act in cases concerning conditional contracts, pre-emption agreements and options.  Our barristers were, for example, heavily engaged in the litigation in which supermarkets sought to avoid completing on contracts to purchase out-of-town sites.  We represent clients in cases relating to third party rights capable of frustrating developments, including cases about restrictive covenants, easements and wayleaves (including rights of light), party walls, access and protestors.  Finally, we often represent clients in cases about the division of the spoils of developments, including cases about the interpretation of overage provisions.
