The division — consisting of over 20 lawyers — will offer services on land acquisition, development and disposal, environmental and planning advice.
The move follows a number of high-profile hires of senior lawyers across the country, who have expertise in transaction structures, acquisition of strategic land options, planning permissions and appeals, contract drafting and negotiation, managing conservation and environmental issues and property dispute resolution and litigation.
The team also has experience in working with registered providers of social housing and charities, including community land trusts providing bespoke housing in rural areas.

“We have brought our collective experience together under the umbrella of our new residential development group, providing services to clients nationally from a team of over 20 specialist lawyers, said Richard Osborn, regional director and real estate partner at Excello Law (pictured above).
“Our business model means that clients have the benefit of working with senior lawyers able to operate with a freedom and flexibility that traditional firms just cannot offer.”
Nigel Turner, co-ordinator of the new team at Excello Law, said: “We are already working with national and regional housebuilders, developers and landowners.
“Our national approach and lawyers’ wide range of skillsets make a highly effective team, while remaining friendly and approachable.”
