Our team covers the whole of London, Homes Counties and the wider South East, with specialist knowledge of the West End.

We advise on development in all sectors including retail, residential, internationally-renowned universities and schools, major town centre and business space schemes.

The office has a reputation in retail development, acting for leading food store operators and advising on city centre retail-led regeneration schemes.

We have delivered attractive city centre residential schemes at Ebury Square, the Strand and Westbourne Grove. At Fortune Green, Stanmore Park and Larner Road we have brought forward mixed use, mixed tenure schemes for suburban intensification. At the LSE, Highgate School and the City University our advocacy has delivered modern educational facilities of the highest design quality.

At Nine Elms we have delivered planning permission for a complex mixed use scheme of 37 storeys and including over 700 residential units, a major store and the ability to provide a new underground station of the Northern Line extension.

The office is led by Michael Lowndes and a team of directors in all sectors across the capital and the South East. It is also the home for various of our national services including Engagement led by James Anderson, Heritage led by Roger Mascall and VIA led by Katy Neaves.
