Construction

Our Construction team acts for all client sectors from developers, investors, banks and occupiers through to those in the construction industry themselves being interior designers, architects engineers, project managers, contractors and sub-contractors.

Our non-contentious work caters for complex procurement methods often related to specific client design requirements of the privately wealthy as well as ground conditions, listed buildings or funding requirements.  In recent years we have advised on the short listing of the full construction teams and are closely involved in the ultimate selection process.  We continue to attend project meetings to oversee the projects through to the end which is particularly useful for those clients based offshore or unfamiliar with the process in the UK requiring an experienced and practical overview.

Our team have real practical experience from many years of involvement in all types of development work.  The approach is commercial and focused on getting the best outcome for our clients, whatever their construction needs.  Many of our recent projects are high-profile architecturally significant design led developments.

Our lawyers deal with our clients' non-contentious and contentious construction law requirements and work closely with our property, finance, planning and corporate teams to provide a single cohesive partner led service.

  • Pursuing and defending claims and counterclaims arising from construction projects in litigation, arbitration and adjudication
