We act for both public and private sector clients, whether in relation to large scale projects or disputes involving factual and contractual issues of some complexity, through to the smaller scale.

- Advice on project management issues
We have in depth experience in the key markets in which the Sector operates including community infrastructure, energy, transport, defence, municipal waste management and water.
Most of our lawyers are dual qualified, both in law and construction, and are therefore able to fully understand from firsthand experience the challenges set by the industry and how they can be best overcome.
Our clients have found that our thorough understanding of the many standard forms of contracts to be invaluable, and indeed a number of our lawyers are recognised experts on the many standard forms of contract used including JCT, Engineering and Construction Contract (also known as the NEC form of contract) and ICE, lecturing regularly both nationally and internationally.
