"An excellent and very modern practice with a practical
approach and an understanding of business issues."
Chambers & Partners 2012
Construction is one of the oldest forms of technology, but we take a modern and practical approach to it. We treat construction and infrastructure as a specialisation, but within the context of a bigger commercial picture - we have advised on projects and disputes in Sectors ranging from Real Estate, Education and Retail to Sport, Leisure and Gambling. We regularly provide integrated advice to clients in conjunction with members of our Corporate, Finance, Real Estate, Litigation and Tax teams.
Our clients rely on construction and infrastructure advice from members of the Team in our various international offices including in England, Germany, Spain and Singapore and elsewhere through our best friends network.
We work with our clients from project conception to completion and beyond advising on procurement methodology as well as drafting and negotiating a full range of appropriate construction documentation. We also advise on the construction aspects of development, property sales and acquisitions and issues relating to investment property.
Where they find themselves facing disputes, our clients benefit from our recognised contentious capability with its emphasis on problem solving. We are experienced in representing clients in various types of ADR, but if there is no alternative or the client elects to pursue formal proceedings (such as adjudication, arbitration or litigation), we help our clients to manage risk and maximise the return from their investment in these processes.
Our Construction Team has a clear understanding of the issues that affect the construction industry as well as access to good contacts across various Sectors. Team members include lawyers who have first-hand in-house and industry experience and the editor of a leading construction law text book.
Our Blog, Constructive, demonstrates our thought leadership on the latest legal, technological and policy developments that shape the industry. We also write regularly for leading publications and we are currently involved in helping the CIOB to produce a new standard form of contract for domestic and international use on complex projects.
We are committed to producing high quality legal solutions which are business-conscious and cost-effective.
