Why Swanwick Murray Roche?

A property developer should expect and receive experienced, competent legal advice for every job. That’s a given.

Our point of difference is that we understand that every development has a tight budget. You want good advice but you don’t want to blow your budget getting it. That’s why we work hard at the start of the matter to scope out what you reasonably need from us, the time frames you need it delivered in and we then fix a budget to suit your needs.

Some lawyers offer lower prices based on a scope of works that will simply not suit you. When the job commences, you ultimately end up paying far more as more and more services are required to be added on through the project.

Our goal is to establish everything you need upfront and come up with a realistic price for the work.

We are here to deliver a quality product, within the required time frame and within the established budget.
