Construction Contracts

Contracts are highly important in the construction industry because they set out the expectations of contractors and sub-contractors, often providing you with much needed protection. As all contracts are different, you should seek legal advice at an early stage to ensure that the terms are correct.

Our lawyers can advise you about your contracts, identifying and dealing with any risks that they may present. Not only can we help during the drafting process, but we can also support you throughout any negotiations, making sure that all of your decisions are fully informed.

Our Construction team can advise funders, developers, employers, contractors and consultants on issues relating to:

  • Procurements
  • Tendering
  • Drafting and negotiating contracts
  • Professional appointments
  • Collateral warranties
  • Bonds and guarantees
  • Development agreements
  • Finance and security documents

We advise on construction projects of all sizes, often working with our in-house Real Estate team on larger developments. Our construction lawyers also work on specialist engineering and infrastructure contracts and are experienced in dealing with all major standard form contracts.

With offices across the country, our construction experts are ideally located to advise both local and national clients. We can also provide support on international projects and have contacts around the globe who can help with your contract issues.
