Construction & Engineering Lawyers

Simply put, we are experts in construction. We have excellent construction capability and experience across the Middle East and Africa.

We offer a full range of infrastructure, construction and energy law expertise. From procurement planning, contract negotiation and drafting to strategic advice during construction, claim avoidance and settlement and formal dispute resolution through courts, arbitration or ADR. Our team of construction law experts is on hand to provide knowledgeable, reliable advice when it is needed, at any time throughout a construction project.

Our lawyers are recognised for their track record in advising on the largest, most complex projects in the region and for successfully resolving associated major domestic and international disputes. We act for developers, government agencies, oil and gas multinationals, international and domestic contractors and consulting firms.

Our team of construction law professionals is experienced in the complete construction lifecycle; from “cradle to grave”. We have a full service offering, including advising on employment issues, performance bonds and parent company guarantees and representation in connection with all regulatory matters affecting the design, development and construction process. Our dispute resolution and international arbitration specialists have a wealth of experience in arbitrations administered by prominent arbitral institutions, regional and international, including ADCCAC, ICC, LCIA, DIAC and DIFC-LCIA, as well as those governed by UNCITRAL and other ad hoc rules. We also assist local and international parties who are involved in proceedings in the local courts around the region.
