Whether you are an employer/owner, contractor, funder/investor or you are buying an interest in a project that is under construction or has recently been completed, you need documents that reflect your risk profile, protect your interests and promote collaborative working and optimum project delivery.
Drafting those agreements and implementing the rights and obligations that flow from them becomes key to avoiding, managing and resolving disputes successfully.
Understanding where, how and why problems arise enables us to devise winning strategies to protect our clients and to craft agreements that facilitate project delivery. Preventing and managing disputes is given top priority. We advise on the full range of domestic and international disputes procedures.
CMS is one of the first firms to recognise construction law as a specialist area and create a dedicated team. Our practice focuses on understanding each client’s business and delivering advice in this context.
Through close relationships with our clients and the sectors in which they operate, we help deliver construction, engineering, infrastructure and energy projects. We advise on every aspect from inception and procurement through funding and building to commissioning and operation.
