Procurement: how will you be procuring the works?
Our experienced team of construction solicitors specialise in providing a comprehensive service of contentious, construction phase advisory and transactional construction and engineering advice, with particular focus on real estate and infrastructure projects, development, property and corporate acquisitions and finance.
We have expertise acting for both domestic and international clients (developers, contractors, high net worth individuals, investors, lenders and real estate funds) on a variety of development projects (high-end residential, commercial, mixed use schemes, infrastructure, leisure, student accommodation, health, education, defence and science).
We have an excellent understanding of the real estate and construction industries and a breadth of experience of working with contractors, consultants, developers, investors and financiers. Combined, this enables us to see the bigger picture and both pre-empt legal and commercial issues that you may face and help you successfully avoid, mitigate and resolve any disputes that may arise.
Our loyalty to providing you with the best possible result helps us gain insight and an in-depth understanding of your business and goals, and how the risk profile and your requirements may change throughout the duration of a project.
Whilst we can get involved at any stage of a development or whenever a dispute arises, in our experience our clients benefit from involving us as early as possible to work alongside them and members of the construction team. Early involvement enables us to get a good understanding of your goals, build a relationship with you and the professional team and draft documentation that is both truly bespoke to your needs and reflects its commercial realities.
We can assist with:
We also work closely with our:
Real Estate team to provide support in the negotiation of documents such as agreements for lease, development management agreements or sale contracts with a development element;
Banking team to support the construction aspects of development finance deals; and
Corporate and Commercial team in providing support in particular in relation to acquisitions of entities that own projects which have either been recently constructed or are currently in the construction phase.
We also have experience in providing dispute avoidance and mitigation advice, and resolving disputes through adjudication, mediation, commercial negotiation and litigation in the Technology and Construction Court for developers, contractors and consultants with support from our very experienced Disputes Resolution team.
