Construction Contracts

Led by Tony Norris, Geldards LLP has one of the best regarded and ‘hugely respected’ Infrastructure & Construction law teams in the market.

Our core practice area is advising our clients on risk allocation and management of the project during the construction and defects phases. Throughout the contract procurement and strategy process, whether that is design and build or traditional, JCT or NEC or a one-off bespoke format, we will work carefully with you to ensure thorough consideration is given to achieve the appropriate risk profile. This includes the risk allocation on performance, cost and financial issues; insurance and indemnities and the difficulties that arise on complex refurbishment projects to cover damage to the existing structure; the current market trends on insurable risks and any limitations / exclusions of liability.

We understand that collaboration and innovation is critical. We work with our clients and the industry on creating frameworks including the SWWF and NPS framework and calling off from others like SCAPE, CCS, ESPO and the DfE. But, we are also highly aware that without pre-empting future issues and changes in law or market conditions, projects may run over budget and suffer delays.

Our dedicated construction specialists with in-depth understanding of the industry will support you throughout the process. We are known for our practical approach and commitment to getting the job done. We are supported by our specialist colleagues from finance, intellectual property, planning and environment, procurement and commercial property and are therefore uniquely placed to bring a 3600 view to a transaction and give a truly seamless service. In an industry where profit margins are slim and risks high, you can trust in our comprehensive understanding, pragmatic and sustainable approach and reliability.
