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.

- joint ventures agreements
- standard construction contracts (e.g. JCT contracts)
