"We have partnered with Barry Sully and Browne Jacobson on many successful land and business transactions over the years. His intimate knowledge of our business and high-quality commercial advice was invaluable on such a large and complex transaction."
“We are not lawyers but we are clued up and there is nothing more infuriating than a solicitor who just gives you risks and problems. Jonathan [Borer] comes to you with a problem and a solution, and very clearly sets out the risk profile to the business, and that is invaluable.”
“Dominic Buckley – Excellent communication throughout projects and ability to perform when under pressure.”
“Thank you to Rebecca [Toates] and the wider Browne Jacobson team for their collaborative approach and sheer determination to get this key investment deal over the line. Their technical knowledge of the ever-changing real estate sector and the regional transactional market is truly impressive, whilst their personal and friendly approach always make us feel at ease.”
The climate emergency has reached a point where real and substantial damage is being caused to both the planet and society. There has been a shift from planning and theorising the most effective solutions, to a phase where practical, efficient, and sustainable solutions are required at speed.
In anticipation of the adoption of the Building Safety Bill, our specialist compliance and regulatory team will give an overview of the measures proposed in the Bill.
The new regime introduced by the Act will take shape over the next 18 months, but those who design, build or manage high rise buildings are being urged to get ready for the changes to be introduced through the act.
In March the government proposed a number of changes to the Building Safety Bill. The new amendments propose additional protection for leaseholders to prevent them from being charged for cladding work if they own up to three properties.
