Charles Russell Speechlys has a notable reputation in the construction and engineering sectors. We deliver a comprehensive and integrated international service.
The civil infrastructure market is valued at trillions of U.S. dollars each decade. Your challenges in delivering high value, high profile projects may vary enormously around the world. We understand those challenges well. Having experienced, flexible and accessible commercial lawyers who are able to advise you on the procurement, structuring, delivery and financing of such projects can make all the difference in the successful and timely delivery of a project. Our skills lie also in the drafting and negotiating of complex but clear, commercially astute contracts that help manage the multitude of risks involved.
Our flexible and highly commercial approach is designed for this fast-moving world, both in the UK and internationally from our network of offices and beyond. We know the funders, the regulators, the landscape. We speak the language, understand the idiosyncrasies and bring our considerable knowledge to bear on your situation: we are known for our personal approach.
We advise organisations broadly across the industry from overseas governments, other public sector bodies, Fortune 500 engineering firms, through to major contractors, specialist sub-contractors, investors, developers and consultants. We help organisations like yours across a range of markets including energy, transport, water and waste water, social infrastructure, building/construction and process engineering. We can support both your daily operations and to secure growth within your long-term strategic aims.
For each market we have experts who understand the specific issues that affect projects. This might involve mainstream construction or engineering projects or privately financed projects for public sector organisations or PPPs. We work across a range of jurisdictions, including throughout the Middle East and in Africa. Many projects will require the drafting of bespoke documentation, but we also work with – and provide training on – all the international model forms including all the FIDIC, NEC3 and IChemE suite of contracts.
We are involved on all aspects of a project from initial procurement and bid, up to financial close, during construction of the project and the operation of the completed building or other infrastructure asset. We also have experts who advise on accommodation and other projects brought forward under various different private finance models for both the public and private sector.
At any stage of a project, be it structuring or bidding, implementation or development, asset acquisition or disposal, dispute avoidance or resolution, we will help you to drive your project forward and keep it on track.
