Construction Law
 

Our construction law specialists provide legal advice to owners, developers, financiers, contractors, consultants and project managers.

We help our clients address the myriad legal issues that impact on building and construction work so they can achieve their project objectives according to their timetable.

With extensive experience in construction and property development projects, we understand the nature of projects, the risks involved, the processes and the key stages of development. This allows us to anticipate legal issues that arise and be able to address them efficiently so the project can move forward without delay.

As with other practice areas, we appreciate the commerciality of your project so we keep a firm focus on costs and outcomes.

This approach enables us to keep your costs down. We achieve costs savings by efficiently managing contracts, identifying issues that may lead to disputes, responding swiftly to claims, and through active resolution of any disputes that may arise.

Our key services in the construction law area include:

  • Negotiating development and construction contracts
  • Documenting contracts including joint-venture agreements and alliance contracts
  • Preparing and responding to tenders
  • Advising on key legislation affecting the construction industry, particularly Security of Payment
  • Advising on potential claims and disputes
  • Advising on contract management, compliance, risk management and performance monitoring
  • Dealing with claims under relevant laws, particularly the Building and Construction Industry Payments Act 2004 (Qld)
  • Advising on planning and environmental issues affecting projects
