Our construction and engineering lawyers act across all phases of development for a range of project owners, institutional investors, project sponsors, developers, occupiers, contractors and sub-contractors, financiers, consultants and suppliers on both contentious and non-contentious projects.
Our construction teams provide an end-to-end service across the entire project lifespan - from front end procurement strategy advice (over the whole spectrum of alternative procurement models), project structuring and development strategies, negotiation and preparation of contracts through to project delivery advice, post-contract advice for operational legal risk management, claims and disputes.
With deep experience advising on large-scale infrastructure, property, energy and natural resources projects around the world, our lawyers are skilled in assisting clients with meeting the local requirements of multi-jurisdictional transactions while also focusing on the broader commercial objectives. Global business is a reality and so is the demand for a highly skilled and mobile international workforce. Our clients expect and receive from our lawyers responsive, commercial and efficient legal support in respect of their global workforces and solutions to their complex legal issues on major infrastructure projects. With lawyers in more than 50 offices across the globe, we are positioned to handle construction and engineering matters wherever they should arise.
With local and international contractors, Hong Kong's construction sector is characterized by a relatively high level of sub-contracting, with larger participants operating as both developers and contractors. Foreign construction companies continue to view the Hong Kong market as an access point to the wider mainland China market, as well as a gateway to other countries within the region.
Our construction team advises statutory bodies, government departments, employers, professional consultants, contractors and subcontractors on the full range of complex, high-value infrastructure and building construction matters, both contentious and non-contentious. Our work includes projects in Hong Kong, China and in other jurisdictions across Asia.
