THE Leeds office of leading North law firm Ward Hadaway has been shortlisted for four industry awards.
In a sector where speed, adaptability, flexibility and aptitude are key, developers need their legal advice to match and their lawyers to behave and think like they do.
Set solutions and rigid protocols are not what are required when tackling a multi-million pound property development scheme or when investing, purchasing or moving into one.
And when it comes to meeting important deadlines, you need to be able to rely on legal support which will help to get things off the ground, done effectively, efficiently and on time.
Our extensive and experienced team of property lawyers is on hand to provide practical, focused solutions at all stages of the development process, from your initial idea and concept, though acquisition and site assembly, planning, funding and investment, to the engagement of a construction team and eventual onward sales and/or lettings.
Our involvement in a wide range of projects over many years means that we are well versed in looking after the interests of all involved in the development process, including developers, buyers, funders, investors, tenants, occupiers, public sector bodies and other interested parties.
Our team operates in all the various different sectors of property development, including housebuilding, office, retail, manufacturing and industrial, mixed use, energy, health, leisure and hospitality.
Because we believe in providing a complete comprehensive service to our clients, we don’t operate behind internal dividing lines, as might be found in some more traditional law firms.
Instead, we field multi-disciplinary teams tailored to suit particular projects or individual clients’ needs, made up of specialists in property and real estate, planning, construction, property litigation, corporate and tax as circumstances dictate.
Unusually for a law firm, we also have chartered town planners and plans technicians as in-house specialists to provide bespoke assistance with development schemes.
We regularly advise on significant strategic development and regeneration projects as well as on smaller scale developments and everything in between.
Our services include:
