non contentious

We have a ‘no surprises’ commercial approach to non-contentious work.

Our experience can provide you with fast and effective solutions on all aspects of construction strategy and agreements across a wide range of projects. We can help you with procurement, risk management, insurance issues, intellectual property rights, bonds, warranties, guarantees, building and engineering contracts, service supply contracts, process and facilities management contracts, bespoke forms and amendments to standard forms.

Whether you are the client, contractor, designer, sub-contractor, construction professional, funder or insurer, we understand and can advise you on the risks and pressures of projects. Our understanding of each of these perspectives saves time and cost when negotiating agreements.

Our approach to handling deals is pro-active and pragmatic. Every step we take is based on the answers to the following key questions:-

  • what are your commercial objectives?
  • what is the project value and what level of risk do you want to transfer / retain?
  • how is the project to be funded?
  • how quickly do you need to move?


We have vast experience in drafting and negotiating project documents. We combine this with specialist expertise in funding documentation, development agreements, building contracts, design team appointments, collateral warranties, performance bonds and guarantees.

The non-contentious construction group advises on construction aspects of property development, property sales and purchases, funding, PFI and infrastructure and regeneration projects. We engineer success for both the public and private sector, from funders to employers, contractors and designers, specialising particularly in pharmaceutical, offshore and heavy civil engineering projects.

We liaise closely with our leading contentious construction team to provide an industry-specific, tailored service to each client.
