We are using Claire Egerton’s Construction and Engineering Team on a number of properties that are new-build and conversion Hotel projects, in various parts of the UK. As a consultant to a Singaporean listed company we needed to ensure that we had first class legal advice that was rational, concise and timely. The pragmatic approach was welcomed and has already helped to mitigate risks that were identified and which will maximise long term returns for our mutual client.Close quote
