We have a specialist team of experts advising acquiring parties – including public authorities and developers – as well as landowners and occupiers affected by compulsory purchase, at all stages and on all aspects of the process.
Our expertise also extends to wider compensation issues including the impact of public works and utilities.
As well as having a breadth and depth of technical knowledge and expertise, our years of experience in advising on ‘both sides of the fence’ have enabled us to develop a thorough understanding of the pressures which the compulsory purchase process places on all parties involved, and to apply a dynamic and pragmatic approach to resolving problems.
We understand how to integrate the land assembly and compulsory purchase process within a development or infrastructure project, and have the know how to find a way through problems. For landowners and occupiers, our understanding enables us to identify and protect interests and ensure that claims are properly prepared and rigorously negotiated.
