Working for some of the most prominent players in the projects and construction industry, our lawyers handle the full range of major construction, infrastructure and engineering projects.
Our major projects team has a truly global presence and has undertaken large scale projects in both emerging and developed markets from the Middle East and Africa to Asia, Eastern Europe and the UK. We operate in jurisdictions that no other firm has entered and our major projects team has a muti-national focus. Our integrated network of offices worldwide means that you can have local expertise with the benefit of an international office.
Our major project work spans both the public and private sectors across multiple industries including social infrastructure, regeneration, transport infrastructure, natural resources, energy, utilities and large scale commercial developments.
Clients instruct us at all stages of the project – before, during and after completion. We draft, negotiate and advise on a wide range of project and concession agreements, EPC and turnkey contracts, traditional design and build forms, civil engineering contracts, facilities management agreements, consultancy appointments, bonds, guarantees, warranties and other ancillary documentation. Our expertise extends to supply chain management, procurement strategies, partnering, joint venturing and alliancing, development upgrades, refurbishments, fit outs and extensions.
We are extremely familiar with the main standard forms of contract (including FIDIC, ICE, NEC and JCT) and regularly prepare and advise on all forms of bespoke agreements to suit our client's requirements.
We understand the importance of practical advice. For that reason, our projects lawyers are also experienced in advising clients on the management of project risk and the commercial elements of a major project. We offer the full range of services needed to get a project to close as well as providing the support needed post completion. Our focus is to provide a solution driven service.
