            Construction and Infrastructure

            Projects in the construction and infrastructure sector are inherently complex and involve high levels of risks. Without practical, clear and robust legal advice your project could fall victim to costly disputes concerning defects, delay or cost overruns.

            DWF’s sector-focussed approach means we are aware of the inherent needs of our construction and infrastructure clients, as well as their priorities and the outcomes they seek. Our capability in this sector is an integral part of our role as a full service commercial firm

            Our lawyers specialise in both contentious (including litigation, arbitration and adjudication) and non-contentious advice, so we are able to play a valuable role in ensuring that your construction or infrastructure project is delivered smoothly, helping you to avoid or manage problems which may arise.
