Sarah Morris Poxton

Sarah Morris Poxton helps clients to assess construction projects and build suites of documentation that speak to their interests while still being commercially astute.

Sarah advises on a wide range of aspects of non-contentious construction, acting for everyone in the 'construction chain,' from funders and purchasers to developers, construction companies and tenants. A wide perspective on all aspects of the industry means Sarah knows how to get the deal done, taking a hard line when required while also taking into account the bigger picture. As well as drafting, negotiating and reviewing all forms of contractual arrangements in the construction realm, she also undertakes a wide variety of corporate and real estate transaction due diligence, advising on documents that have already been entered into.

With a positive attitude and a focus on the client's end objective, Sarah works to strike a balance in her client's favour. Whether working for a developer to put together robust documentation that equally distributes commercial obligations with advantageous terms, or alerting a potential landlord on the construction obligations they could face (or rights they could benefit from) in taking on a property, she is always on your side.
