Construction and Engineering

Recommended in Legal 500's North of England league, our construction and engineering group is one of the most skilled, successful and experienced in the country.

Watson Burton’s construction and engineering group has attracted some of the UK's largest housebuilders, developers, contractors and funders as clients because of its impressive track record. National legal directories call it a 'premier' practice with ‘a truly fantastic team’ which can tackle major projects and resolve the most complicated disputes.

The team provides first-rate advice to private and public sector clients throughout the whole life cycle of projects. Group strengths include advising on procurement, project documentation, risk analysis, problem solving and dispute resolution – with particular experience in mediation and adjudication.

It also offers something different to other national firms with real and appropriate partner input throughout, and a highly competitive pricing structure. Transparency throughout each project builds strong trust.

Areas of expertise include:

'Their stand out quality is their business understanding and their tailoring of advice to provide the right answer for the businesses'

'The team has a strong local knowledge of the North East "village"; they are flexible and customer-focused'
