Projects, Infrastructure & Construction

All business ventures and activities carry risk

None more so than in the fields of major projects, infrastructure and construction.

Whether you are funding, supplying, designing and constructing, servicing or otherwise operating in the built environment, or in infrastructure and the connectivity of things, the change and innovation you’re seeing in terms of modern methods of construction, the digital economy, integrated procurement and delivery partnerships, globalisation of supply chains, new funding structures and alternative forms of dispute resolution are just some of the areas that you will need to understand and navigate to manage your risk and reward.

You want to feel confident that you have fully understood those risks and have allocated responsibility fairly and appropriately, so that risks can be managed successfully as one successful team, for everyone’s shared success – for your clients, customers, employees, supply chain and your other stakeholders.

To assess risk and navigate a path through risk to success, whatever that looks like for you, you need trusted legal advisors who know you inside and out, so that you participate in your chosen market as one successful team.

Managing Risk & Resolving disputes

We are specialists in assessing risk and advising you, using clear language to describe to you what that risk looks like, whether it appears fair and how it compares with risks taken by others in your chosen market or sector, as well as how you might manage that risk. We can also offer a view on reward and how that might be better attained and shared with your clients, customers and stakeholders.
