Full service team covering all aspects of construction law

BrusCCC  construction legal advisory team advises on procurement, risk management and disputes for a wide range of clients, including contractors, owners, consultants and insurers. We have advised in technically complex projects, in relation to a wide range of industries, in particular in the energy and infrastructure fields.

What we do in Construction
Our work can be divided up into three core areas:

Procurement: We advise on all aspects of drafting and negotiating construction contracts and other related project agreements. This includes providing advice on the full range of contracts used in the construction and engineering market as well as related procurement issues, such as tendering procedures, security documentation and insurance. We have considerable exposure 

Live project advice: A considerable amount of our work involves advising employers and contractors during the course of a project. This will include advising on the procedures under the contract, such as notices and applications for time and money. We are often asked by clients to provide a project monitoring service, to support the project team on the legal and contractual issues that regularly arise.

Dispute resolution: Our work can involve providing specific targeted advice on particular limited points in dispute or, at the other extreme, providing an entire team to develop and run a major claim. Our ideal is to be involved at the early stages of a dispute in order to help negotiate a resolution before positions become entrenched or intractable. If matters do progress, we have considerable experience of all dispute resolution forums, including mediation, adjudication, DAB, expert determination, litigation and arbitration. We advise regularly on all types of construction claim, including in relation to project delay, disruption, variations, defects, termination and the recovery of insured losses.
