Herbots is a technology-centric construction law firm based in the heart of Dublin & Brussels.

We are specialists in construction law. In fact, we're the experts that other lawyers call when they need help in construction cases. Other firms also refer complex construction matters to Herbots, often after having had the pleasure of facing us as the opposing legal team.  While we're tough, we always try to be professional with our fellow solicitors, and they appreciate what we do and how we do it.

Our expertise in tendering, contracts and dispute resolution is your assurance of solid legal foundations for your project. Our investment in technology doesn’t just save you time and expense; it delivers peace of mind.


But we also like to question the rules of the game. We’ve learned the most creative and effective solutions come from an unorthodox perspective and challenging the standard formulas.

To achieve this, we always start by clarifying your end game as well the situation you are in. We look at all aspects of your business and legal problems with a creative perspective. We draw on subject matter experts, including photographers and graphic designers who can enhance complex maps, drawings and charts, creating visuals that aid clarity. This is important as in construction, clarity is everything.

Ultimately, we’re committed to developing and executing the most effective strategies that accomplish your goals.

We also work with you closely to identify your goals and communicate them clearly in all documentation for contractors, consultants and suppliers, to help avoid disputes.


While we work hard to resolve disputes early and amicably when possible, we are always prepared to take cases to trial and fight the right fight, in the right way, and have an excellent track record in that regard.

Whatever your aspirations, our considered advice lets you proceed with confidence, including tenders for higher-value projects.

Sometimes litigation cannot be avoided. Whether we’ve collaborated with you on your project’s groundwork, or we’re new to you, our track record demonstrates that Herbots is an excellent choice to act for you if litigation occurs.
