Completing complex projects with tight margins to challenging deadlines: we understand the day to day pressures inherent in any construction project because we have been helping our clients to plan and deliver successful schemes for many years.
We work with national and international businesses, institutions, charities and landowners on construction projects of all sizes and types. In the construction industry, we advise developers, professional practices and construction companies; and we also offer expert legal support to banks and the full range of property finance providers.
Our specialist team advises across the spectrum of legal issues, from the formation of contracts and appointments, to the procurement of security documents including performance bonds, parent company guarantees and collateral warranties, along with the implementation of third party rights. We advise on the construction aspects of lease and development agreements and of facility agreements and other banking documents. Our experienced team is familiar with both domestic and international standard form contracts and all models of procurement, so you can be confident we have the spread of expertise to advise on all the legal elements of your project, whatever the challenge.
Inevitably, disputes can arise in construction, and we regularly work with clients to help them avoid or minimise contractual problems during the course of a project, and provide formal dispute resolution through mediation, adjudication, litigation or arbitration.
We are known for our collaborative approach and in particular for the support we can offer to clients who are undertaking a construction project for the first time. Procuring a design and completing construction can be daunting: we have the experience you need to keep the process as straightforward and clear as possible, and make sure you deliver on your commercial objectives.
For those clients who are experienced in the field, we offer tailored no-nonsense advice and fast turn-around times to progress projects as efficiently as possible.
