Construction & engineering

Practical advice and support for managing risk, resolving disputes and handling project documents.

Here to help you take the strain

Construction and engineering projects often involve a high level of commercial and other risks, not to mention a weight of documentation. We help to alleviate this and put a particular emphasis on risk management and risk aversion. Our comprehensive service covers everything from procurement and contract services to dispute resolution. And we work across every aspect of construction and engineering, including infrastructure, energy and public procurements.

Reliably swift, cost-efficient support

Our private sector clients include developers, employers, contractors, specialist sub-contractors, professional consultants and funders. We also work with public and third sector organisations such as local authorities, charities, schools, academies, colleges and universities. Whatever your sector or situation, we work to achieve your objectives in the fastest, most cost-effective way.

Bringing clarity to complexity

If you have a dispute, we can act for you in adjudication, arbitration, litigation, mediation or any other approach to dispute resolution. When it comes to procurement and contracts, we can advise on and negotiate all standard contracts such as JCT, NEC, FIDIC and IChemE. We can also draft and negotiate bespoke contracts on your behalf and provide support and advice for a wide range of documents – from development agreements and procurement routes to funding agreements.

An approachable, commercially minded team

Whenever you turn to us for help, our philosophy is to provide the robust support you need as efficiently as possible to protect both your time and money. We listen carefully and ask the right questions to gain the detailed insight we need. Then we give clear, no-nonsense advice that’s practical and commercial and based on years of hands-on experience.
