Construction and Engineering

Our team advises national, international and regional clients on the entire range of construction-related projects, from large scale commercial and residential developments to highly complex plant facilities (as well as smaller, domestic projects).

We focus on the matters that pose a real risk or have a significant pricing implication and provide practical advice in plain English to enable our clients to understand, mitigate and manage those risks.


Our services include advising on all the major standard form construction contracts, as well as on bespoke professional appointments, and collateral warranties. Our services extend to advice on project risk management and dispute avoidance.

We have extensive experience in structuring, drafting, and negotiating procurement documentation, building contracts, professional appointments, development agreements and security documentation for employers, developers, contractors, occupiers, high net worth individuals and banks. 

In addition, our team can advise on all aspects of project finance.


We have very considerable experience in construction dispute resolution, both in the UK and worldwide and whether by litigation, arbitration, adjudication and mediation. 

The complex and variable nature of construction and engineering work often generates disputes. These disputes can be time-consuming and expensive and our team adopt a tactical and commercially focused approach to best protect your rights.

We have collaborations with leading experts in the industry (including quantum experts and delay analysts), enabling us to provide additional resource to achieve early resolution and protect our clients’ commercial interests as far as possible.
