Construction and Engineering Law

We provide a full construction law service for clients that include employers, contractors, specialist sub-contractors, banks, developers, consultants and insurers.

Construction projects often comprise a complex framework of contracts and documents involving numerous parties and stakeholders. Putting in place the most appropriate contractual framework on a construction project is therefore imperative.

Well drafted contracts reduce the risk of disputes which can be very costly and time consuming.  Sometime disputes are inevitable and we help clients avoid disputes or resolve them at an early stage. As well as exploring legal rights and remedies, our advice focuses on the practical steps that will achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.

The Construction Law services which we provide include:

  • procurement options and strategy;
  • drafting and advising on standard form and bespoke construction and engineering contracts;
  • framework agreements and joint venture agreements;
  • Professional appointments;
  • Warranties, parent company guarantees, letter of intent and other ancillary documents;
  • construction related property and funding documentation;
  • risk management;
  • Adjudication;
  • dispute avoidance; and
  • dispute resolution and litigation.

To discuss any construction law matter please contact a member of our specialist business law team today to arrange an initial consultation.
