Construction and Engineering

We understand that construction and engineering projects bring with them a host of concerns, demanding schedules, vulnerable supply chains and fragile profit margins. With a considerable team of specialist construction and engineering lawyers, our advisory expertise spans the construction cycle, from strategy to completion. We are part of a wider team that includes experts in Dispute Resolution, who provide advice when issues become contentious.


We're committed to helping you succeed at every stage of your project. This means anticipating and resolving the challenges, to always ensure that you operate with contractual terms that consider both risks and opportunities in the project.

Across the sector, our clients include organisations in housebuilding, education, health, retail, offices, mixed use development, logistics, transport, energy, infrastructure, local and central government. We work with occupiers, leading contractors, developers, funders and associated professionals in the public and private sectors.

Whether working on specialist projects or day-to-day matters, our approach is distinctively tailored to your specific needs. We stand out for being easy to engage with, ensuring that working relationships are strong, focused on delivering high quality advice in sophisticated, customised and creative ways.
