Construction law

We provide, sector-specific advice on all aspects of construction law and construction finance. This  includes structured finance and derivatives, securitisation, leveraged finance (including public and private acquisition finance), asset finance, project and PFI finance, restructuring and insolvency.

Our construction team focuses on an early identification of key risks and opportunities facing specific projects. They then assist with developing an appropriate risk management strategy.

We negotiate and draft bespoke contracts, and advise on all the major standard form contracts. We do this in the residential, commercial, infrastructure and resources sectors.

Working closely with our dispute resolution team, we promote avoidance of late delivery, defects and cost overruns. In doing this we also avoid damage to reputations, client relationships and profitability. Committed to ensuring clients are not unnecessarily involved in costly litigation, we explore the cost-effective alternatives to full litigation. We regularly act in arbitration, mediation, dispute review boards and expert determination. Where litigation or arbitration cannot be avoided, we draw upon the depth of our experience in acting in disputes of all sizes. This includes the highest value construction disputes over several continents, all of which have involved complex claims.
