Construction

Construction projects cover a wide range of legal issues and have become more and more complex. From the outset, legal agreements should cover all risks, quantify deliverables and specify quality standards.

Our construction lawyers can draw on many years’ experience on projects of different sizes and complexity. We have been providing legal advice and drafted agreements for a number of significant projects. Our strength lies in assisting clients from the inception of a project right through to the start of operations.

We provide advice on NEC and FIDIC construction agreements and related aspects. Our aim will be to ensure that all applicable documentation is well-drafted at the start-up, but if disputes are unavoidable we will assist  any available  dispute resolution process, for example adjudication, arbitration and litigation.
