Why Creagh Weightman Lawyers?

There is a reason that our building and construction specialists are considered exceptional, and it’s more than simply knowing the law or the number of building and construction disputes that are resolved.


It takes years to accumulate significant experience in dealing with construction law matters, from pre-contractual drafting and contract review through to insurance issues, dispute resolution and litigation. In addition, building solicitors are required to obtain a licence to perform their work and services.
