Real Estate Development

Real Estate Development - Australia

Whole-of-project thinking

Our Australian real estate development lawyers give you all-important peace of mind on major urban renewal projects, developments and redevelopments.

Our ability to think across the life of a project sets us apart – from clearing the planning and approvals process, right through to funding, construction and leasing.

Keeping you one step ahead

It means we are always several steps ahead, considering the issues likely to arise and the effect that one decision may have on another part of your project. Most importantly, we help resolve these issues before they become problems.

What this means for you as a client – whether you are a developer, sponsor, financier, contractor or tenant – is that the journey to project completion is less risky, more cost-effective and, generally, more enjoyable.

Our expertise in development projects covers:

  • Planning
  • Funding 
  • Construction
  • Leasing
  • Stamp duty
  • Operating arrangements
  • Regulatory approvals
  • Joint ventures.
"They are involved from planning and tender through to delivery, advising on all topics that come up."
