Our construction lawyers provide a comprehensive service to clients throughout the construction and engineering industries.
Our lawyers cover all aspects of construction and engineering law, including:
- Commercial contracts and warranties
- Dispute resolution and litigation
- Health and safety
- PFI/PPP projects
- Intellectual property
The scale and duration of the projects in this sector call for specialist expertise in drafting and negotiating contracts and our team has deep experience in contracts for supply, installation, construction and facilities management, appointments, collateral warranties, bonds and parent company guarantees.
We are able to advise on early stage issues, including procurement, public procurement, competition law and State Aid matters.
When problems arise, we are there to support clients with troubleshooting, mediation, adjudication, litigation and arbitration, both domestic and international. We are experienced in handling all kinds of construction-related disputes, from professional negligence to fee claims, final account claims and extensions of time. We also advise on health and safety issues and defend health and safety prosecutions.
The breadth of our practice means that we can use our construction expertise to support our clients across a wide range of corporate activities. Our understanding of construction issues has been particularly valuable to clients undertaking M&A transactions in the construction and engineering sectors. Our construction lawyers advise overseas companies that export engineering and process plant into the UK, particularly from the German-speaking countries, and we have helped a number of UK and overseas clients on substantial PPP/PFI projects. We have also drawn on our IP and technology specialists to advise on the IP aspects of construction products and services.
