Occupation: Construction Solicitors

Our specialist team of construction law solicitors, comprising lawyers, adjudicators, arbitrators and mediators, have extensive experience advising on contentious and non-contentious construction matters, from construction contracts and procurement to various methods of dispute resolution whether through litigation or alternative dispute resolution. We act for developers, contractors and sub-contractors at every stage of the construction process.

In a changing market, our construction and engineering team can provide you with a reassuring presence. Whether you want light touch advice or strong action, we have the knowledge and experience to help you in the most effective way. We want to build a long standing trusted advisor role with you, in a similar way to having your own in-house counsel, and we will invest our own resources to do so. That approach has worked well for our existing clients, who appreciate our knowledge of their business and our experience in applying the law to the industry. We are there when needed, whether you need a contract written or a problem solved.

Our construction lawyers advise on:

  • drafting and negotiating of building contracts such as the JCT, NEC, ICE and GC/Works forms
  • all stages of competitive tendering under UK and EU public procurement legislation including tender documentation and bid evaluation
  • appointments of designers, consultants and project managers and amendments to professional bodies' standard terms
  • performance bonds, guarantees and collateral warranties
  • development agreements for regeneration schemes

  • challenges to procurement procedures
  • extensions of time and loss and expense claims
  • final account disputes
