Construction, engineering and infrastructure projects can lead to potentially complex, costly and politically sensitive disputes, however carefully crafted the contracts. By their multi-jurisdictional nature, such disputes require a legal team with profound experience of the construction and infrastructure industries and specialist global resources to match. Our dispute resolution team across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific (including Australia), Australia and South Africa contains a number of construction specialists with experience of disputes with a wide range of governing laws and procedural seats.
Leading project companies and sponsors, utility companies, developers, contractors and sub-contractors, financiers, consultants and suppliers instruct us on disputes ranging from office blocks and hotels to complex civil structures and infrastructure projects such as roads and railways, high-tech process plants and power generation facilities. Here, our experience of disputes affecting conventional power plants, nuclear power plants and renewable energy projects is unparalleled.
