Our construction team combines technical excellence with commercial awareness and pragmatism to provide practical advice and assistance on the entire lifecycle of a construction project. This covers of non-contentious and contentious construction work for a broad spectrum of clients operating in the building and engineering industries.
Our non-contentious expertise ranges from advising on the structure, negotiation and drafting of complex multi-party infrastructure projects to commercial mixed use and regeneration schemes. We have broad ranging experience and a comprehensive knowledge of the UK’s standard forms of building and engineering contracts, institutional contracts and made to measure contract forms.
Once a project is underway we provide advice and support at all stages of the contract as part of a dispute management process, assisting on contract interpretation and administration and giving practical risk management and strategic advice with a view to avoiding disputes, as well as acting in any ensuing dispute resolution process, including representation in adjudication, including enforcement in the TCC, arbitration and court proceedings as well as utilizing alternative forums such as negotiation, expert determination and mediation, for the resolution of disputes.
