Working closely with our property, corporate and regulatory groups, we provide you with a seamless service from project inception to completion (and beyond).

Our construction and engineering group is involved in major construction projects in the UK and overseas. We act for all sides of the industry including major contractors, consultants, developers, educational institutions and housing associations.

The group’s work involves the negotiation, amendment and finalisation of project-specific agreements. We are also involved in the resolution of construction and engineering disputes, often through alternative resolution where appropriate. In addition, we have a wealth and depth of experience in private, commercial and public procurement.

Over recent years, the group has successfully expanded and now with six solicitors, making it one of the largest construction and engineering teams in the region.

We spend time getting to know our clients and their business and pride ourselves on our practical, imaginative and unstuffy approach.
