Druces’ construction team advises developers, consultants, contractors, funders, insurers and end users on all aspects of construction law on a wide range of commercial, infrastructure, retail and residential projects and mixed use developments across the UK and abroad.
We advise and represent clients on industry standard form building contracts, consultant appointments and warranty documents and produce a wide variety of bespoke project documentation to cover all stages of construction projects. These include tendering and procurement strategies, framework and partnering agreements, pre-construction services agreements and strategic alliancing arrangements, bespoke appointments, collateral warranties, third party rights for end users and associated contract documentation required for the successful implementation of a construction project on time and on budget.
We are also here to assist when difficulties arise on a project, giving practical advice on contractual issues and dispute avoidance strategies to contractual claims preparation and responses. In conjunction with Druces’ Litigation and Dispute Resolution team we provide a fully integrated dispute resolution service for construction disputes embracing negotiation, mediation, adjudication and litigation. The construction team combines legal skills with an in-depth practical knowledge of the construction sector to provide commercially viable business solutions that achieve our clients’ objectives in a cost effective way.
