HOW WE CAN HELP REPRESENTATIVE EXPERIENCE ACCOLADES

We cover the entire lifecycle of a construction project, from project financing, planning, negotiation, documentation and administration, to claims management and dispute resolution. We are experienced in interacting with different parties, including developers, project managers, main contractors and subcontractors, architects, engineers, surveyors and other construction professionals.

We understand not only the legal aspects, but also the technicalities. We are staffed with lawyers with dual professional qualifications of quantity surveyor and arbitrator. We are known to offer realistic, practical, and commercially sound advice in running a construction project.

Being a dynamic industry, risk is inevitable. With our experience in documentation and administration, we serve you from the outset to mitigate and manage your risk exposure.

In dispute, our award-winning litigation and dispute resolution practice provides you with strategic advice to sail you out from the midst of conflict. We are also well versed in handling different types of professional negligence claims in construction.
