A dedicated team bringing practical solutions and extensive experience to construction & infrastructure developments.
We regularly advise on major commercial developments including housing and regeneration schemes, energy & waste facilities and retail & leisure projects. We work across the supply chain and for a wide range of clients including commercial and residential developers, local authorities, housing associations, retailers, contractors, sub-contractors, professional consultants, funders and joint venture entities.
We have extensive expertise in the energy & resources sector, advising on the development and ongoing operation of ground-mounted and rooftop solar developments, biomass plants, energy from waste facilities, battery storage projects, onshore and offshore wind farms and carbon capture projects.
We offer quality, accessible legal advice at every stage of a project, from initial strategic input and drafting, through to negotiating contracts and undertaking due diligence for investors, funders, and incoming purchasers and tenants.
We advise on the full range of construction documentation, including bespoke and standard forms of construction contract, professional appointments, collateral warranties, novation agreements, bonds, development agreements, parent company guarantees and letters of intent. We also regularly support with broader legal issues that can arise including in areas like property, planning, corporate banking, finance and employment.
We are attuned to our clients’ business needs and make sure to understand the wider commercial considerations at play in any transactional negotiation. Our lawyers recognise that every client’s requirements are unique and we can deliver the full spectrum of legal input. This includes ‘ad hoc’ advice to support an in-house legal team or experienced construction business through to extensive hands-on involvement throughout every stage of a project.
