Construction & Development

construction building
The global construction industry is becoming increasingly complex to navigate. With growing costs, regulatory requirements, and affected geopolitical events, successful project completion and business growth requires the right legal support and guidance.

Understanding the Construction and Development Sector

Critical to global economies, the construction industry faces a growing number of challenges: materials and skills shortages; development of new technology; and new regulatory regimes. As a major contributor to greenhouse emissions and global energy consumption, the industry also needs to build smarter, more sustainably, and integrate ESG into business strategy.

Best known for working hard to get the right results, our team of specialists can advise on every aspect of day-to-day business management, operations and strategy. Our ability to see the bigger picture is derived from our unrivalled experience of supporting clients to mitigate risk, save costs and achieve growth.

Our experience is derived from advising on many significant and high profile construction, infrastructure and development projects, for both the private and public sectors. We provide end-to-end, full spectrum legal and business services, designed to help deliver projects on time and to budget. Our lawyers can advise on complex construction contracts, effective dispute resolution, claims management, and procurement advice and guidance.

We advise banks, investors and funds, architects and designers, contractors and sub-contractors, global corporations, FTSE 100 and 250 companies, commercial developers and insurers, as well as government and local authorities.
