Construction and Engineering

Our experienced team specialises in providing transactional construction and engineering advice from project inception through to completion, with particular focus on real estate and infrastructure projects, development, property or corporate acquisitions, finance and renewable energy transactions.

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) and have a growing non-contentious renewable energy practice (solar), acting for both investors and contractors. 

We have experience in drafting and negotiating:

  • building contracts, sub-contracts and trade contracts (based on industry standard forms – JCT, NEC or bespoke);
  • consultant appointments (bespoke or based on industry standard forms – RIBA, ACE)
  • collateral warranties;
  • bonds;
  • guarantees;
  • escrow agreements;
  • development agreements;
  • development management agreements;
  • engineering, procurement and construction contracts;
  • operation and maintenance agreements.  

We also advise funder clients in relation to construction security aspects in the context of development finance deals.

Brandusa Tataru-Marinescu is ranked in Chambers UK and described as a “very capable lawyer” with a “broad non-contentious practice”.

Our loyalty helps us gain 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.

We can help with issues ranging from day to day problems on site, to advising on specific procurement issues, legislation, health and safety concerns and negotiating complex documents for large projects.

We have a good technical understanding of the construction process, which, combined with our experience working with contractors, consultants, developers, investors, financiers, local authorities, enables us to see the bigger picture and pre-empt legal and commercial issues that clients may face.
