We assist in planning processes and in large and small development projects, encompassing everything from the transformation of large areas to the development of individual properties.
For many years we have supported clients in complex development projects and have gained broad experience and expertise in all development process stages, from area plan analysis and planning and building matters, through to project completion. We advise on commercial, residential and holiday property developments, public buildings and infrastructure, as well as public private partnerships. We assist with drawing plan proposals, impact assessments, development agreements, sequential requirements, refunds, expropriation and the application process itself up until project completion. Our development project clients range from large companies and public authorities to smaller developers and arrangers, as well as architects and engineers.
Our team consists of lawyers with a good commercial understanding of development processes and in-depth experience of planning and building legislation and political processes.
