Property Transactions and Conveyancing

Back to Services

Industry expertise is crucial in being able to identify the risks and opportunities within a potential transaction.

Transactions are one of the most important parts of the interaction with property. They can determine the success or otherwise of developments, investments, and commercial ventures. As with the property itself, each transaction is different and requires attention to detail and experience dealing with a variety of stakeholders.

Cowell Clarke’s expertise across practice areas allows us to provide advice on property transactions that include multiple legal perspectives. We are able to structure deals of sale and acquisition that incorporate necessary considerations across property, commercial, tax, environment and finance. If a problem arises within a transaction, we have dedicated a property dispute resolution team with expertise in building, construction and infrastructure that is ready to represent your interests.
