Legal advice for strategic developments

Every land acquisition has its challenges. When that land is defined as strategic, there is an additional layer of complexity and it takes an experienced team of lawyers to guide clients through.

Strategic land is any land or property which hasn’t yet reached its development potential. It may be that planning permission, consent or allocation is needed before it becomes viable and valuable development land.

Risk is a common theme in every strategic land acquisition. Our commercial property lawyers help manage that risk, working with commercial and residential developers to identify land and advising on its financial and practical suitability.
