Our work includes acting for insurers and reinsurers in relation to all aspects of dispute resolution, litigation and arbitration under international trade rules, statutory adjudication and all forms of ADR, as well as generally supporting private and public sector clients in construction and real estate law.

Construction & 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. Our specialist legal team will manage every stage of the process for you. From inception through to completion, from contentious and non-contentious, we have a proven track record for success.


Our energy specialists work across the firm against a background of complex, but largely positive changes, helping clients to make the most of the challenges and resulting opportunities, without unnecessary surprises. Our well-informed insight, guidance and up-to-the-minute knowledge means we are able to provide critical advice for clients facing an increasing number of challenges within this sector.


Working both in the UK and internationally we are one of the largest specialist insurance teams in the UK, supporting both the public and private sectors. We take the time to know every client we work with, to understand your needs, objectives and ways of working - in particular the ultimate objective of delivering the indemnity savings and insight needed to mitigate claims and litigation frequency.


By combining our Automotive, Aviation, Marine & Trade, Rail & Bus and Road Haulage and Logistics sector to form one group, we draw on our collective expertise to provide a client and commercial-led approach for the transport sector. By working hand in hand with our other sector groups, we can raise a highly qualified team to support the most complex transport issues.
