Construction & Engineering

We advise clients from across the construction and engineering industry, including developers, contractors, construction professionals, insurers and funders.

We provide commercial, cost effective and timely legal advice throughout the lifetime of your project: from inception to completion and beyond.

Our non-contentious expertise includes drafting and negotiating building and engineering contracts, professional appointments, warranties and bonds, and advice concerning insurance.

Our contentious expertise includes adjudication, ADR, arbitration and court proceedings and the resolution of claims for defects, delay to completion, certification issues, loss of engineer/architect’s independence, loss and expense claims, final account disputes, insurance matters and professional negligence claims.

We also advise on the regulatory framework for safety including the Health and Safety at Work etc Act and the CDM Regulations 2015, offering proactive and pragmatic advice in the case of an incident or health and safety related investigation.

Whether your case is non-contentious or contentious we work alongside and in close collaboration with your existing team, managing risk and working within budget and to programme.

Our Construction & Engineering team is Julia Davenport-Cooper, Richard Fisher, Kit Harvey and Catherine Welch.
