Our International Services ...
Most forms of contract used internationally started life in the UK as a FIDIC, NEC or other standard form. Having followed the development of these forms over the years, Silver Shemmings offer invaluable insight to international clients on the nuances and application of such contracts.
The UK also leads the way in professional development and regulatory bodies in construction. Prominent Institutes include the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, the Chartered Institute of Arbitration and the Chartered Institute of Builders and many of our members are Fellows of these organisations.
