Landmark is fortunate to number most of the leading players in the residential development world amongst its clients. Our barristers are able to offer a uniquely comprehensive advisory and advocacy service across the sector, from strategic land to procurement, contractual and compensation litigation.
At the strategic end of the spectrum, Landmark barristers have an unparalleled track record of offering advice on residential development strategy. Advice often includes emerging planning law and policy at the national and local level, and how it might impact on your business. Situated at the heart of the development world, we combine enduring connections with the Government with daily contact with those seeking to deliver all forms of housing. Barristers have advised on the formulation of the NPPF, the PPG, Written Ministerial Statements, White Papers and other consultation documents, the London Plan and all forms of local and regional strategies where residential development is key.
Planning permission is usually a critical path item for all forms of residential development and Landmark barristers are involved with every type of scheme. Giving advice earlier in the development process is becoming much more common, but Landmark has comprehensive experience in all aspects of negotiations, planning appeals, Tribunal adjudications and High Court litigation affecting residential development.
Landmark’s public law expertise also allows us to deal with the full range of regulatory issues affecting residential development, such as public procurement, European regulatory requirements, CIL, compulsory purchase, environmental protection, and building regulations.
Our barristers also advise and represent in relation to the full range of property law issues affecting residential development. These range from strategic advice on easements and covenants to land deals, leases, overage and equalisation agreements and trusts affecting the development of land. Members are able to assist you from early consideration of land purchase structuring through to those cases where litigation is unavoidable.
