Building & Construction

Our construction team provides a comprehensive range of construction-related legal services within the Australian building & construction law industry. Especially developers, owners, builders and subcontractors. Significantly, our construction lawyers come from a diverse background. We have technical experience, and qualifications in civil engineering and project management. This allows our firm to provide our clients with the unique ability to provide both legal and practical advice in relation to their construction matters.

Security of Payment and Domestic Building Contracts legislation protects individuals and businesses operating in all Australian jurisdictions. Our team has a strong understanding of the operation of these important statutes and their effect on businesses in the construction industry. We are therefore well placed to guide you through the legislation and your legal rights and obligations.

Building & Construction Law Firm

We work with our clients on every phase of construction projects, both large and small-scale. Particularly, our construction lawyers have the ability to assist our clients during the following phases of a project:

  • Defining Project Objectives and Scope
  • Conceptual and Feasibility Analysis
  • Preliminary Design Phase
  • Engineering Design Phase
  • Procurement
  • Construction Phase
  • Post-Construction Defect Walkthrough
  • Operation and Maintenance
  • Decommissioning

Therefore, if you have a matter in dispute, our team is highly experienced in all aspects of construction litigation. Moreover, our lawyers have appeared in the Federal Court of Australia and down to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Our lawyers are experienced in all forums.

Further, in line with the Australian Construction Industry and Security of Payments Act, our lawyers are able to assist you in making and defending adjudication applications. Equally important, our preference is to pre-empt litigation proceedings and work with all parties involved. We can then identify potential points of dispute in order to resolve them before they reach the litigation stage.

The firm has extensive experience in the negotiation, preparation and enforcement of all types of commercial and industrial construction contracts. We have the expertise and experience to ensure we always create the best legal strategy to meet our clients’ needs.
