Real Estate

Our real estate capability is unparalleled. Many law firms may say they are able to support the full life cycle of property ownership but we can genuinely make that claim. Our property department includes one of the largest in-house planning teams in the country (including both lawyers and chartered planners), a property dispute resolution practice, a construction team as well as a very substantial transactional capability.

How our real estate lawyers work


The number of our property partners and consultants enables us to offer a genuine partner led approach on projects and assignments.

DMH Stallard’s real estate capability enables us draw together expertise to build multi-disciplinary teams and to offer a genuine start to finish legal service. We support clients from site appraisal and, where necessary, assembly, acquisition, planning and thereafter construction, through to management and disposal. Speed is often of the essence and the scale of our practice enables us to assemble teams and turn projects round rapidly and efficiently.

Our property solicitors support clients in sectors as diverse as housebuilding and construction, investment, utilities, retail and the public sector.

The team have excellent contacts within the property industry across all four of our geographical locations with opinion formers and business leaders.

We can advise not only on the most complex of financing, development and regeneration projects, but also on volume and routine matters too. We have our bespoke technology platform, DMH Direct, that offers an innovative and streamlined approach to property management and we can offer that to our clients without charge.

All transactions involving property are important. We offer an initial discussion about your project brief without charge so please get in contact with a member of the real estate team.
 

"The team is consistently able to provide clear and concise guidance to issues and suggest practical and pragmatic solutions."
