A commercial view

A 50 year heritage of course guarantees technical skill on all points of law and a thorough understanding of the legal framework surrounding property development: that’s a given. But what’s also important for you as a builder or developer is for your legal advisers to have a strong grasp of all the commercial aspects of your project. As are a well-developed ability to collaborate with other experts such as engineering consultants, architects and land agents, and excellent relationships with local authorities.

You can count on Sedgwick Legal for all of this, including a sound insight into the commercial viability of proposed developments. We’ll work closely with you to evaluate the best way forward strategically, always focusing on your aims and objectives, both for the short and long term.
We’re always ready to welcome new builders and property developers at Sedgwick Legal.
