Property Development

We have recognised experience in the full range of property and development projects from master planned communities, mixed use developments, high rises, land subdivisions, hotels and shopping centres.

Hickey Lawyers has established a reputation as a leader in sophisticated legal advice for all aspects of the property and development industry.

Our stable of clients in this sector includes major ASX-listed companies and international and national private developers. We have worked across a multitude of different projects, including billion-dollar master planned communities, mixed-use developments, high-rises, land subdivisions, hotels, shopping centres and golf course estates.

While much of our work is concentrated in Queensland and New South Wales, we have experience in property and development matters right around Australia and internationally.

We offer the complete range of property and development legal services including negotiating and documenting complex joint venture arrangements, all sophisticated project documentation, construction and funding agreements and conveyancing instruments.

From the first foray into site acquisition until the last contracts are settled, we deliver proactive solutions for our clients, keeping them well informed of any potential issues that may affect their commercial interests.
