We have extensive experience advising clients concerning complex and high-value development schemes, including town centre and out-of-town regeneration, commercial, retail, sports, residential and mixed-use developments, student accommodation, hotels, infrastructure (including energy centres and sub-stations) and site remediation. Our team has experience in providing professional services in projects funded by various development partners like East Africa Development Bank, Africa Development Bank, World Bank and other Donor Funded Projects. We have affiliation with construction profession bodies and institutes such as the Institute of Construction Claims Practitioners in the UK, which keeps us abreast of international development and contemporary issues in the construction industry.
We routinely advise clients concerning letters of intent, preconstruction services agreements and other contractual arrangements to be put in place before works commence on site. We act for many clients, including developers, funds and other institutional investors, occupiers and high-net-worth individuals. We also have experience in acting for contractors and consultants.
The team also handles a full spectrum of claims providing advice and representation to clients throughout mediation, adjudication, litigation, arbitration and other dispute resolution procedures. We have advised various clients on the legal regimes applicable to construction operations, payment disputes under construction contracts, disputes relating to defective works/remedial works, final accounts, delay and extension of time claims, liquidated damages, professional negligence on construction projects, variation claims, contractor/employer insolvency, and retention of title claims among others. We have experience in advising on EPC and turnkey projects under FIDIC, JBCC, GCC, NEC4 and NEC3 contracts.
