Construction and development

The construction and development sector has been hard hit over the past few years, but things are recovering and there are some very exciting developments happening around the region that Stephens Scown is involved in. Our team of specialist construction and property lawyers in Exeter, Truro and St. Austell continues to provide specialist advice to help our clients take full advantage of new opportunities.


Independent legal guide Chambers & Partners describes Mike Northcott, a partner in our property team, as “not just a property lawyer, but a trusted advisor”, while Jim Gorrod, a partner and specialist construction lawyer, is recommended by Chambers as “detailed and deliberate”, providing straightforward advice on this specialist area of the law.

Our construction and development team has a proven track record of dealing with residential and commercial developments, as well as a wide variety of construction projects. Our development lawyers advise on detailed options, site acquisitions or promotion agreements, and work closely with other teams in the firm, including our specialist planning lawyers. The construction team regularly advises on issues to do with procurement and the negotiation of construction agreements, as well as handling all types of dispute, from adjudication to High Court actions.
