Meet the team

We understand the entire project lifecycle, which means we give our clients comprehensive planning advice that reflects future commercial opportunity.

Planning is the first and often most frustrating part of any development project. Our detailed knowledge and industry awareness means we guide our clients through the complexities of planning processes in new developments and account for planning considerations longer term.

With planning specialists and wider expertise in environmental and health and safety issues, we handle contentious and non-contentious planning matters primarily in our core sectors of Energy and Transport, as well as Real Estate and high profile multibillion-dollar global infrastructure projects.

Our clients include developers, investors and financiers who come to us for advice on risk mitigation, consents, EIA/HRA, compulsory purchase, legal challenges and defence in regulatory enforcement and prosecutions.  We add particular value through our proactive approach to the planning process, taking account not only of immediate project considerations, but how they may also relate to planned future developments.
