Construction and Engineering

  • The Legal 500 United States 2014 - Leading Firm

Our construction and engineering lawyers are true authorities. Clients select us as a result of our legal experience in, and our in-depth knowledge of, the construction and engineering industries.

Our lawyers are involved at each stage of a project’s life-cycle, often as part of a client’s delivery team, whether at: (i) inception (procurement and risk management); (ii) implementation (project counsel); or (iii) completion/post-completion (litigation and dispute resolution).

In our experience, it is vital that projects are properly managed not only from a technical, but also from a legal/commercial, perspective. Our lawyers have a proven track record in providing project support, working in integrated teams with clients and the full range of consultants, whether local counsel, engineers, schedule managers or advising/testifying experts.

The firm’s deep knowledge of the construction and engineering industries and its experience in the resolution of complex disputes that can arise on projects, has also given us a strong reputation in representing clients throughout the dispute resolution process, whether in court, arbitration or using ADR techniques.

We are among the few law firms to offer a truly global practice with an international network of highly experienced lawyers who can advise on construction and engineering projects around the world. We can pull together experienced teams from our global resources to assist clients wherever their projects may be located.
