Areas of law we work with include the following:
Strategic land is a long game with different approaches to suit a landowner’s appetite for risk, need to generate cash and wish to control the look and feel of the developed scheme.
With larger schemes involving more than one landowner, you will need to consider how you structure the delivering of the scheme, working with your neighbours, while mitigating tax.
In Cheltenham, our strategic land team offers a one-stop service to landowners, helping you plan for and realise maximum value. Our team operates within one of the largest private client practices in a UK law firm and one of the largest real estate teams in the country. Our breadth and quality of specialist services across the firm give us the ability to offer a one-stop service.
We act for over 100 estates and for both individual and institutional landowners in relation to sites across the country. We have extensive knowledge and experience in guiding landowners through the options available and can assist with your negotiations to achieve the best deal and deliver a solution which maximises value and tax efficiency.

Technology & Cyber
Advancements in technology across all aspects of our lives are imperative to growth, prosperity, security and safety.
Creating an environment which harnesses innovation, creativity, teamwork, education and thought leadership, attracts financial investment and draws in the best talent is critical to the development of new technologies and the creation of the Cyber Park in Cheltenham will provide just that. Supported by stakeholders locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, it will place Cheltenham at the centre of the world’s cyber industry at a time when security has never been more relevant to businesses, governments, banks, schools, the health service and each of us individually.
Cyber and Cheltenham go hand in hand and our full-service team is ideally placed to support all aspects of your business. We have a proven track record in advising dynamic, forward-thinking businesses across the broad spectrum of technology and cyber and welcome the development of the cyber community right here in Cheltenham.
