        Construction and Infrastructure

        Construction and engineering projects are inherently complex and involve high levels of risks. Without practical, clear and robust legal advice your project could fall victim to costly disputes concerning defects, delay or cost overruns.

        Our specialist legal team will manage every stage of the process for you. From inception through to completion, we have a proven track record for success from pre-contractual stages such as structure and procurement advice, negotiation and agreement of contracts including joint venture, development, project, concession, and maintenance agreements as well as construction documentation including appointments, performance bonds, parent company guarantees, direct agreements and collateral warranties.

        "I've found the service to be of an extremely high quality. I would have no hesitation instructing them on significant matters, and equally I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others."
        – Client testimonial via Chambers & Partners

        Since our lawyers specialise in both contentious (including litigation, arbitration and adjudication) and non-contentious advice the same team is able to play a valuable role in ensuring that your project is then delivered smoothly helping you to avoid or manage problems which may arise.

        Whether you’re an employer, contractor or consultant, working on a nuclear, renewables, oil and gas, utilities, railways, roads and bridges, ports and harbours, retail, education or residential project. We use our experience and industry knowledge to deliver the results you need in the timescales you need them.
