Regeneration projects are one of our key areas of focus. We have a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers who specialise in regeneration projects. This includes lawyers specialising in competition, construction, corporate vehicles, finance, planning, projects, public law and procurement, real estate and tax.
Our team is exceptionally well resourced and has been involved in some of the country's most high profile regeneration projects to date. As a result of their continual involvement in projects of this nature, we have specialist expertise in the areas of PFI/PPP, state aid and grant schemes, procurement issues, CPO, outsourcing, housing and mixed use schemes across the full range of disciplines. We are independently recognised by the legal directories as the go-to firm for major urban regeneration and mixed use schemes.
The extensive experience we have of advising on innovative structures means we ensure delivery of successful regeneration schemes. We advise on many complex regeneration joint ventures and have been involved in some of the most innovative public/private partnerships of the last decade. We have a dedicated specialist cross practice team both in housing and in structural partnerships between the public and private sectors.
Our in-depth understanding of regulatory and accounting frameworks, under which public bodies must operate, enable us to offer our clients market leading advice at the cutting edge of developments. This is particularly key at a time when many projects are facing viability issues.
Clients we work with in this sector include Liverpool City Council, Grosvenor Limited, Great Portland Estates, Homes and Communities Agency, Olympic Delivery Authority, Bath and North Somerset Council, Crawley Borough Council and Bracknell Forest Borough Council.
