Construction

Driving your projects forward

Specialist construction solicitors

Budget overruns, delays, quality issues and defects, health and safety risks, staffing problems; the list of things that can go wrong in a construction project is almost endless.

Any one of these challenges can undermine any project.

That’s why, whatever your role on a project, you need specialist construction solicitors who roll up their sleeves and can tackle issues head on with timely, focussed and pragmatic advice.

At Steele Raymond, our construction lawyers give you powerful solutions so that you can get on with driving your project forward.

Steele Raymond's pro-active construction lawyers are experts in identifying and managing risk and, if something goes wrong, helping you settle any claims quickly and efficiently so you can concentrate on getting on with the things that really matter.

We’ve been delivering solutions to clients, from employers to sub-contractors, funders to contractors, for decades.

  • Expertise

    There’s no substitute for hard-earned experience.

      • joint ventures agreements

      • other key documents such as collateral warranties, bonds, parent company guarantees, guarantees and professional appointments
    • settle any construction disputes including professional negligence claims (such as on delay and disruption, defective workmanship or not completing work by the due date)
    • work out an appropriate dispute resolution strategy including what route is the most appropriate for you (such as negotiation, conciliation, mediation, adjudication or litigation in the Technology and Construction Court)
    • manage all phases of the dispute resolution process
