Expert advice for construction and engineering projects

With the right advice, construction projects can run smoothly. Our construction and engineering lawyers make this their priority.

Construction Legal Advice

Our team advises employers, main contractors, sub-contractors, funders and professional designers on all aspects of construction law.

We advise on the practical and commercial as well as legal aspects of any project, working closely with clients to establish the appointments that need to be made, the financing to be put in place, and the terms that best protect and promote their interests.

We prepare and negotiate the full range of construction contracts and documents for commercial developments and domestic building projects including JCT, NEC and ICE contracts.

We can advise on procurement, funding and risk management and provide a rounded service by working closely with other specialist departments on associated issues including:

  • employment law
  • banking law
  • planning and development
  • dispute resolution.

Fixed fee construction law services

We offer a fixed fee service for reviewing construction documents, enabling you to have your construction documentation checked without the risk of unforeseen legal costs. For a fixed fee, our team will review:

  • Warranties
  • Appointment documents
  • Amendments to standard forms of construction contracts

As part of this review service, we will highlight any areas of concern which may prevent disputes arising in the future, whilst at the same time ensuring you have peace of mind in relation to the costs for this service. Our charges for reviewing a warranty would typically be £250 + VAT.

We also offer a free, no obligation, half hour telephone consultation to discuss your construction contract.

"Loyal clients delight in the service they receive from this team – ‘from adjudication to general construction advice, we trust them completely to deliver an excellent product’."
