Construction, Energy & Projects

We help projects of all shapes and sizes get off the ground smoothly

If you’re working on a project, getting the right legal advice and guidance helps it run as smoothly as possible. Our team takes on projects of all shapes and sizes, working with everyone involved – from project managers to suppliers, or government bodies and local authorities to private companies.

We know how complex projects are, so we’ll always make sure we’ve got the right person, with the right expertise, working on the right parts of it – whether that’s infrastructure, development, regeneration, or funding.

From procurement and project structuring to construction advice and dispute resolution, we’re well-versed in avoiding bumps in the road – and navigating them quickly when they do happen.

Below, we’ve listed an overview of the advice that we think you might find particularly useful. But, if there’s something you’d like help with that you can’t see here, we’re happy to develop tailored training.

Construction

We advise on the full life-cycle of construction projects. Whether you’re a developer, a government body, a contractor, or a utility provider, we can help.

Construction advisory:

To give a construction project the best chance of getting off the ground on time and on budget, you’ll need some advice along the way to make sure you’re compliant. We advise on:

  • Procurement
  • Contractual structures
  • Framework agreements
  • Building contracts, professional appointments, novation deeds, collateral warranties
  • Security documents
  • Facilities management contracts and supply agreements
  • Due diligence.

Construction disputes:

Construction projects don’t always go smoothly, particularly when there are lots of people involved. We help manage disputes as quickly as possible – while minimising the damage to your bottom line. We can help with:

  • Dispute review and management
  • Adjudication
  • Arbitration
  • Litigation
  • Mediation.

Energy

We’ve got an in-depth, pragmatic understanding of the commercial, technical, and regulatory issues that come alongside the demands of the energy and utilities sector.

If you’re working on a project involving either traditional sources of power or renewable energy, we can help.

  • Renewable energy (tidal, wind, solar, waste to energy)
  • Traditional energy sources
  • Utilities.

Projects

Large projects are complex at every stage – from conception to operation. We work on a wide range of projects, from civil infrastructure and engineering to energy finance and public private partnerships.

We understand and advise on complex contractual structures, delivering projects and understanding funding and interface issues.

Lawyers from across our firm work together to make sure you get the appropriate, sector-focused, legal advice.

We have a strong and established relationship with Capital Law, particularly with regards to their expertise in the Waste sector. We’ve found their approach and advice to be sensible, pragmatic and fully focused on delivering successful outcomes.
