Real Estate Construction
We advise a wide range of clients in the public and private sectors.
Whether we are acting on relatively simple construction schemes or highly technical projects, our clients appreciate our pragmatic and commercial approach.
We specialise in complex domestic construction and engineering projects such as commercial offices, corporate and bank headquarters, shopping centres, major international energy and infrastructure projects, PFI/PPP work, finance, insolvencies, insurance contracts, claims analysis and contentious work.
This experience gives us an excellent understanding of the wide spectrum of issues that arise across various sectors. We work closely with procurement and project delivery teams from the very start of each project, making sure all solutions meet our clients’ requirements at every step of the way.
Because our lawyers regularly draft and amend building contracts, consultancy agreements, warranties and performance securities – such as bonds and guarantees – to ensure adequate rights of recourse, we are well versed in the construction-related legal issues that organisations are likely to encounter.
