Construction

Simplifying complex building and construction projects

One of the most regulated industries in Australia, with the highest number of disputes and insolvency events. It’s an industry with competing interests, different trades and professions all working together under one specific project each with a common goal; to complete on time, within budget and in accordance with the scope of works. Construction is a complex web of contracts and agreements, compliance and unexpected complications. Support from a smart construction lawyer can make the difference between a job delivered on time and budget or costly overruns that eat up project profit.

The best construction lawyers understand the balance of complex relationships and tight deadlines that demand an expert touch in managing construction projects. They also know the law and stay across new legislation so you don’t get caught out in compliance issues and costly litigation.
