Construction & Engineering lawyers

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.

They are very efficient and very professional, and I've been very pleased with the support provided. The team is very strong.
