Whether clients intend to acquire, own and occupy their property; or they intend to undertake development land assembly; employ architects, surveyors, engineers, arrange development funding; secure planning consent and then proceed with a development for subsequent disposal or retention in an investment portfolio, our property law specialists at Mercantile Barristers are able to provide sound commercial and legal advice throughout the entire process.
Invariably, several interests attach to a property in the development process, some of them often conflicting. Our barristers understand the relationship between these interests and can advise on practical and well-informed positions that protect and maximise the client’s commercial interests whether the client is the tenant, the owner, the lender or the developer.
Our approach to legal practice is always to articulate creative and value-adding solutions for clients whilst delivering timely, efficient and affordable professional services. All clients conduct their affairs within a legal context and Mercantile Barristers’ role is to advise on the conduct of their transactions and affairs in ways that avoid conflict and disputes.
However, should a dispute become inevitable, then our prior engagement would have assured that all the necessary precautions have been taken and mitigating steps adopted. Thus, clients will begin any dispute resolution in a strong position to achieve their desired objectives.
Whether by adjudication, arbitration, litigation, members at Mercantile Barristers will adopt a firm, swift and decisive approach to achieve the best possible results for clients within the shortest possible time. We recognise that no two cases are the same, so we will adapt our style to suit the occasion.
