To all our valued customers,
Our primary concern is the wellbeing of our loved ones, and that of our staff and customers, and we sincerely hope you are safe and well.
For several weeks we have been preparing our business to ensure we can continue to provide legal services during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Our business model is already built around smart working, with our technology designed to support over 200 lawyers who already work from home, reducing the need for social contact.
The information here outlines how we will continue to operate and what adjustments we are making to ensure the safety of our clients and staff.

    In these changing times it is imperative that you have lawyers who understand your goals and deadlines and can be relied upon to get the job done as quickly as possible without the need to be constantly chased. From a RTB to a PFI we can work with you.

    Our property team has worked in the housing and regeneration sector for over 20 years, acting for registered providers of social housing, housing action trusts, local authorities and also for national housing developers.

    The team has extensive knowledge of the ever increasing range of development routes and home-ownership models available to the sector.

    We pride ourselves in working with our clients as an extension of their in-house development teams, as opposed to being an external resource. It matters to us that you meet your development and grant funding deadlines and we work hard to ensure that they are achieved with as little stress as possible.

    We think that it is crucial that the site set-up process for sale schemes is dealt with simultaneously with the acquisition. We see ourselves as the conduit between our clients' development team and their sales team, ensuring a seamless transition from development to sale so capital gains can be maximised as quickly as possible.

    We are always happy to have an informal discussion or meeting without obligation so that you can be sure you are making the right decision in seeking our help and support.
