Construction & Engineering has long been one of our core practice areas.
We have a large team of specialists, including many of the top silks and juniors at the commercial Bar and are widely respected for our mastery of complex technical detail, our keen understanding of the commercial challenges our clients face, and our outstanding advocacy.
Lauded as “one of the go-to sets for construction matters” (Chambers & Partners, 2017), we offer huge experience and industry knowledge across the construction and engineering sectors, both in the UK and internationally. Our work includes major infrastructure projects, high-profile commercial developments, landmark public buildings, large-scale energy projects, PFI/PPP projects, sports stadia, hospitals and airports.
Our barristers appear in some of the most high-profile, high-value, and important construction litigation in the Technology & Construction Court, Commercial Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. Our work spans the full spectrum of dispute resolution, including arbitration (domestic and international), adjudication, dispute boards, and mediation. Often, we are engaged in an advisory and strategic capacity at the very outset of disputes and then throughout the lifespan of a case.
International construction work has long been at the forefront of our practice. We offer in-depth experience in international arbitration across many regions, including the Middle East – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Qatar and Oman – and the Far East including Singapore, China, and Hong Kong, where we maintain an office. Many of our team members are also registered as advocates in other jurisdictions, including Australia, the British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, the DIFC, Ireland, Malaysia and Singapore.
Our Construction & Engineering practice is further augmented by the breadth of our expertise in professional negligence, insurance, and commercial law, making us uniquely placed among construction specialist sets to advise clients on the full implications of their disputes.
Our long-established expertise in this specialist field was recognised with awards for 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.
