No matter how many times you’ve done it in the past, a new construction project is a major undertaking and it pays to minimise your risks. The first step is to ensure that your contracts are as watertight as possible.
But even with the best contracts and the most professional setups, you can still encounter problems. When the worst does happen you need a legal team that understands the legal perspective and the commercial one and can talk you through the options and give you a practical answer.
Our real estate team works with all members of the professional team including employers, main contractors, sub-contractors, engineers, architects and quantity surveyors, so we have an in-depth understanding of your sector and the way it works.
We can advise you at every stage of the proceedings. This includes negotiating settlements, starting litigation or arbitration, acting in mediation or adjudication proceedings and enforcing awards. We can also help if you have an insurance issue.
