Non-Contentious Construction

Our transactional team advises on all stages of construction and engineering related projects, from initial procurement strategy to the drafting and negotiation of project documentation and strategic advice on risks following completion.

We aim to help maximise profits and maintain project cash-flow, while reducing risk and liability for our clients. Operating a fully integrated team across our three UK offices and our European and international network, our experts deliver effective in-depth counsel and unparalleled service wherever our clients need it.
