- We act for developers: It’s difficult to find someone who understands the complexity of progressing a significant joint venture project, while balancing statutory requirements and relationship management between builders, regulators, agents and purchasers.
- We act for buyers and sellers: Buying or selling real estate should be straightforward, it’s often touted that way, and 80% of the time it is. For the unfortunate other 20%, it’s involved, protracted and convoluted and requires a subject matter expert to cut through to a solution as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
