We understand that the many complexities surrounding construction projects require a pragmatic approach to legal support, which is designed to safeguard your interests at each stage of the process.

We have extensive experience of advising developers, contractors, sub-contractors, professional advisers and funders on construction-related projects. These range from tender packages and build contracts to appointment agreements, collateral warranties and guarantee bonds. We advise on both standard contracts including the likes of JCT, ACE and RIBA as well as bespoke contract documentation. All advice is clear and commercially focused, with an emphasis on risk allocation.

We also have an excellent reputation for our work in relation to construction-related disputes. In all cases we ensure that matters are dealt with in an efficient and cost-effective way. We are used to resolving disputes both through court proceedings and through alternative dispute resolution techniques including arbitration and adjudication. We can provide a comprehensive view of the benefits and drawbacks of all potential routes to help identify the most appropriate, and proportionate legal solution for your individual claim.
