You, Construction & Engineering
& Ince, in any case
Setting out appropriate contract terms from the beginning of your construction project can help you to avoid uncertainty, disputes and unnecessary costs. Our client base comprises nationally known house builders, residential and commercial developers, offshore trusts, family offices, high net worth individuals, contractors, sub-contractors, and suppliers.
We are experienced in advising on the structuring of construction procurement, and in drafting, reviewing and negotiating all kinds of industry documents, whether standard or bespoke, including main contracts, subcontracts, framework agreements, professional appointments, collateral warranties, bonds and guarantees, as well as advising on insurance and other legal issues.
We advise clients on all aspects of the project life cycle and are therefore able to advise on any disputes that may evolve. We mediate, arbitrate and litigate disputes in construction whilst also frequently advising developers and sponsors on all types of preliminary and initial agreements relating to their construction projects.
