Construction Solicitors

Our experienced and specialist construction solicitors offer clear, commercial and strategic legal advice, focused on helping your business objectives. We provide a full range of legal services for those involved in the construction & engineering industries.

The construction industry can be complicated from a legal perspective. Legislation must be carefully adhered to and contractual disputes must be quickly resolved.

We have the expertise to provide robust contentious and non-contentious advice to employers, consultants, contractors, subcontractors, purchasers, tenants and funders across a range of construction and engineering industry sectors to help assess and manage the legal risks of procurement and construction.

We provide legal advice on issues such as the implications of contract notices, extensions of time, the timing and content of payment and pay-less notices, payment of retention, suspension of work and termination.
