Real Estate Development and Planning
Allen & Overy has wide ranging experience in advising on a diverse range of development and planning matters including premium residential, office (including global HQs), retail, hotel and leisure facilities.
We advise leading developers, funders and occupiers on all types of projects providing them with advice spanning real estate, planning, construction, environment, energy and infrastructure related projects and PFI/PPP.
A significant part of the practice's work involves innovative funding and structuring techniques. Much of our work involves the use of joint ventures allowing our clients to share the knowledge of their commercial partners, share risk and increase tax efficiency.
We also have wide experience in dealing with all types of planning work in the office, retail, industrial, hotel and residential sectors as well as substantial infrastructure and energy projects such as power stations, gas storage facilities, offshore windfarms and transport schemes. Within these overall sectors we regularly advise on all aspects of planning law and its practically related specialisms, including built heritage and listed buildings, compulsory purchase orders, highways, judicial review and local authority practice and procedure.
