Construction & Infrastructure

Building a strong legal foundation to ensure the successful delivery of complex construction & infrastructure projects.

How we can help...

We are one of the leading construction teams in the UK with significant experience advising across a wide range of complex and often innovative construction, engineering and infrastructure projects.

Our work regularly involves the delivery of energy and clean energy projects, waste and energy from waste initiatives, residential developments and their supporting infrastructure, wide ranging commercial developments; as well as advising on projects in the public/government, education and healthcare sectors.  

Clients benefit from having robust contracts in place helping to ensure successful project delivery while minimising the risk of costly and time-consuming disputes further down the line. Our experience includes pre-contract risk reviews, and drafting and negotiating the full range of construction contracts and ancillary documentation.  We also have significant experience advising on disputes in adjudication, arbitration or court litigation across a range of projects and contract types with significant experience on multi-million pound construction disputes in the Technology and Construction Court. The combined approach of our team enables us to offer clients support for projects from start to end.

Our clients include a broad cross-section of major international sponsors, project companies, developers, leading contractors and consultants, waste and water companies, public bodies and housing associations.

"A great team, communicate clearly, precisely and more than happy to de-mystify terms and have been ever so considerate in repeating explanations where through usually pressure of work or time we have forgotten. Always available, fast response times, and consistent through all parts of the Construction team."
