Construction Law

Our Construction Lawyers deal with a variety of legal issues, supported by one of the largest property law teams in the region. 

Legal agreements on construction projects are often lengthy and complex with many different agreements requirements to ensure a successful working relationship between the parties.

Construction law services:

  • Advice on all standard form construction contracts (including JCT and NEC)
  • Construction contract preparation
  • Contractor or sub-contractor advice
  • Construction disputes
  • Consultant terms and conditions

  • Development procurement options (design and build contracts, standard build contracts)
  • Development agreements
  • Joint venture construction agreements
  • Letters of intent
  • Security documentation – Advice for funders

All construction or development projects of any size will invariably involve a number of different parties with numerous different legal agreements. It is crucial for the smooth running of a project to get an early grasp on what will be required, what basis the parties will be contracting with one another and what level of contractual protection there is.

Whether you are starting out in the construction industry and require strategic legal advice on the various procurement options, or you are an experienced property developer seeking legal advice on complex developments, we have the experience and knowledge to help.

We have a wealth of experience across our team in advising employers, contractors, sub-contractors or consultants, in all aspects of construction projects. We also frequently advise funders on their construction related security documentation when lending on a construction project.

Depending on which position you have adopted in the construction project, it is important to consider what contractual protections you will require.
