Property Development


We provide a comprehensive service for residential and mixed-use developers.

We are a specialist Property Development team led by Mike Smith. The current team have been working together for approaching 20 years. 

We act for national house builders, niche developers and commercial developers.  We have a good reputation in the industry and often handle large, complex projects that are usually the preserve of City practices.

Whoever we act for our approach is always the same – we want to be seen as part of our client’s key team, rather than external consultants.  We can add far more value if we are part of our client’s team.  We also enjoy it more!

Our Experience


The purchase of the iconic landmark building overlooking the Thames in Richmond. This building was converted into a luxury residential development.

We dealt with the setting up of a joint venture vehicle, the purchase of the freehold, various funding arrangements and a complex works agreement involving the Petersham Common Conservators.

The Old Branston Pickle Factory, Bermondsey

This was a £50 million purchase of the old Branston Pickle factory in Bermondsey, London.
It will be developed to provide approximately 400 flats, shops, offices and an art gallery.

We dealt with the acquisition, the Section 106 Agreement, the sale of affordable housing and the letting of the art gallery.


An award-winning mixed-use development.

We acted in respect of the acquisition, the Section 106 Agreement and the lettings of a theatre and retail units.


This is an estate regeneration in North London over a 10-year period.

We dealt with the principal development agreement, affordable housing sale agreements, transfers/leases to our client and the registered provider; a new community centre lease to a community trust and a lease of the new church.


We advised on 2 separate Section 106 Agreements which facilitated the creation of 2,500 new homes over a 10-year period together with ecological and flood mitigation areas, parks, new schools, nurseries, community facilities, employment land and retail units.


This was the regeneration of a five-hectare brownfield site in Brentford which provided 908 dwellings, shops, restaurants, an art gallery, a creche and hotels.

We acted in respect of the acquisition, section 106 agreement and the sale of affordable housing, commercial and retail units.
