Construction

We are one of the leading Chambers in the field of Construction and we were delighted to be awarded Construction and Energy set of the year in the Legal 500 UK Awards 2018 and Construction set of the year in the Chambers UK Bar Awards 2017.

We have expertise in all aspects of construction, engineering, and infrastructure disputes in global and domestic projects.

Our highly rated team of Construction specialists has experience across a huge range of construction projects from bridges, hospitals, housing, offices, retail, railways, roads, and tunnels; to airports, cargo systems, defence facilities, factories, hotels, nuclear plants, ports, power stations, process plants, underground railways, warehouses, and water treatment.

We act for employers, contractors, sub-contractors, public authorities as employers (both at national and local government level), project company special purpose vehicles (SPVs), facilities management contractors and project funders, for insurers and professionals. We have extensive experience as specialist advocates in litigation, arbitration, adjudication, mediation and dispute resolution boards. We have been involved in many of the highest profile cases in the TCC and at the vanguard of adjudication jurisprudence.

Our expertise and experience extends across the whole range of PFI/PPP projects. We are involved with both the asset/facility construction and delivery stage of a PFI/PPP project and with issues that can arise throughout the long-term operation and management of the asset/facility (for example disputes concerning contractual interpretation, the Payment Mechanism or the discovery of latent defects).

Our PFI/PPP focus is not only dispute resolution under the frequently bespoke Dispute Resolution provisions of PFI/PPP contracts but also dispute avoidance and dispute management – helping our clients to achieve commercially sensible outcomes without the need for arbitration or litigation.

Our complementary expertise in Insurance and Professional Negligence makes us uniquely placed to understand and advise on the full complexities of our clients' disputes.
