Hewitsons is one of the UK’s leading law firms with a national reputation for its construction law expertise.
The firm’s dedicated Construction team advises clients, including contractor and consultant clients, on all aspects of construction projects. This ranges from advice in regard to tendering of construction contracts, contract negotiation, security and guarantee agreements (including collateral warranties and bonds) through to contract administration issues/strategies and advice in regard to claims and contract disputes.
The team’s detailed knowledge of the construction industry and strength in depth means that our commercially-aware lawyers are able to advise on the preparation of documentation to avoid particular problems and minimise the impact of any disputes.
We advise on all contentious construction disputes (including disputes relating to time and additional payment issues as well as those in regard to defects) and are actively involved in adjudication work on behalf of developers, contractors and construction professional clients. The firm also includes trained mediation experts.
