The team at Irwin Mitchell, which is based across the firm's Gatwick and Chichester offices, has a 'commercial' approach and is 'sensible on key points'. The group handles complex development projects and land acquisitions including brown and greenfield sites, as well as advising on financing, construction and planning matters. In one recent highlight, it advised Seaward Properties on the acquisition, development, financing and sale of affordable housing plots to a registered social housing provider. Tina Webster is a key contact in the Chichester office and Gatwick-based Balbit Thandi 'is always available to speak and strives to do the best for the client'.
