Our Construction, Engineering & Projects group provides the full range of contentious and non-contentious services for large scale construction and engineering projects, in the UK and internationally.
We mainly act for commercial clients across a wide range of business sectors, but with a particular emphasis on real estate developers, property investment companies, contractors, and major engineering consultancies. We also advise high net worth individuals when undertaking high value residential construction projects.
Core non-contentious legal services include advising on all forms of construction and engineering contracts and associated documentation, insurance arrangements, and related financial security (such as bonds, guarantees and letters of credit). We also advise on obtaining suitable warranties and use of third party rights in sale and purchase agreements.
Our dispute resolution experience is extensive. It covers mediation, adjudication, arbitration (domestic and international), expert determination, as well as bringing and defending claims brought in TCC court proceedings. We focus our dispute resolution strategy on maximising the net recovery for our clients when bringing claims, and minimising or extinguishing their exposure when defending them.
We are a large team of 30 specialist lawyers, based across our three UK offices and internationally within our two Middle East offices. The team includes dual qualified barristers and solicitors, engineers, and accredited mediators and adjudicators. Our full-service approach ensures that our client’s priorities are identified, and an appropriate strategy adopted to achieve them. Our aim is to provide a personable and highly responsive specialist service to long standing clients in our chosen sectors.
