The combined specialisms of our property partner John O’Donoghue and planning partners Alice Whittaker and Rachel Minch, mean that clients have access to unrivalled levels of expertise in these interwoven fields.
Our real estate and planning teams advise a diverse range of clients, including investors, private developers, public sector bodies and financial institutions. The experience we’ve gained from acting in large scale public infrastructure projects helps us forge compact teams that collaborate quickly when required.
Some challenges need us to draw in our dispute resolution or projects and PPP teams; others require collaboration with our tax and corporate teams. Whatever challenge you face, our focus is always on completing the deal, taking great care with every detail and keeping cool heads.
