Construction & Engineering
Whether you are an employer/owner, contractor, funder/investor or you are buying an interest in a project that is under construction or has recently been completed, you need documents that reflect your risk profile, protect your interests and promote collaborative working and optimum project delivery.
Drafting those agreements and implementing the rights and obligations that flow from them becomes key to avoiding, managing and resolving disputes successfully.
Understanding where, how and why problems arise enables us to devise winning strategies to protect our clients and to craft agreements that facilitate project delivery. Preventing and managing disputes is given top priority. We advise on the full range of domestic and international disputes procedures.
One of the first firms to recognise construction law as a specialist area and create a dedicated team, our global practice focuses on understanding each client’s business and delivering advice in this context.
Through close relationships with our clients and the sectors in which they operate, we help deliver construction, engineering, infrastructure and energy projects. We advise on every aspect from inception and procurement through funding and building to commissioning and operation, as well as dispute resolution.
Unlike other firms, whose construction lawyers do a mix of contentious and non-contentious work, we have partners and associates who are dedicated to and experts in these particular disciplines.
Working closely with colleagues specialising in real estate development and project finance, insurance, tax, procurement law, planning, energy and environmental law, our full service Construction Team has a market-leading track record of advising on a diverse range of transactions and disputes concerning some of the largest, most complex and high profile projects in the world.
