HWL Ebsworth's construction lawyers understand the blend of commercial and legal issues confronting participants at all levels of the building and construction industry. We offer front-end, claims management and dispute resolution expertise to ensure project profitability and to minimise disruption through disputation.
Our services are designed to support the respective areas of the construction industry: builders, developers, sub-contractors, consultants and finance institutions investing in the industry.
Achieving commercial outcomes requires responsive and authoritative legal advice backed by the industry knowledge and experience necessary to identify risk and put in place strategies for risk avoidance and minimisation. Increasing regulation in the areas of tenders, purchasing policies, licensing, safety and industrial relations requires expert advice focused on the particular needs of the building and construction industry.
Changing economic cycles and increasingly price driven competition require greater sophistication in project delivery methods and contracting strategies as well as implementation of vigilant contract procedures and project management.
