Commercial Development

From our many years’ experience in commercial property, we have built a wealth of knowledge and understanding of all facets of commercial developments. Whether you’re working with a single plot, a complete building renovation or a large-scale commercial property development; we will be on your side to offer practical, invaluable legal advice and guidance on every stage of the development progress.Our commercial development team have acted for major UK developers throughout their projects and specialise in dealing with issues surrounding planning, tax, leisure, retail, construction and infrastructure.

We ensure that every development deal is handled to minimise risk and maximise value for our clients.


We can help to draw up pre-emption agreements between owners and developers seeking to buy the property or plot. Pre-emption is also known as right of first refusal, meaning the buyer will have the first offer of the land/property when the owner is ready to sell.


This is also known as a ‘clawback’ provision that we sometimes recommend sellers to take out if they may be potential for a valuable redevelopment of land in the near future. This specialist and delicate area of law requires considerable experience, which our team of commercial property solicitors are highly qualified to undertake.

Plot Sales

The sale and purchase of land is often misconstrued to be simpler than the sale and purchase of property, however plot sales require an in-depth knowledge and expertise of the building industry. There can be many complications, especially where developments are plotted quite tightly together and where garages are concerned. Our commercial development team are experienced in plot sales and producing documentation in an efficient manner.
