“Top notch on construction and procurement matters.”

The construction sector is at the core of our business – from small property renovations, such as adding a room, or renovation of a bathroom, to the multi-million Euro development of motorways, housing estates, shopping centres or office blocks.

Our contracts ensure that design, construction, operation and maintenance issues are considered as a whole to reduce potential claims. Roles and risk allocation are best set out clearly from the beginning.

We know the construction industry inside-out, which is why our clients rely on us for practical advice and options that come from our vast experience and understanding of the sector.

We have successfully litigated virtually every construction project related issue, including those involving contract interpretation; delay and disruption disputes claims; disputes relating to scope of work changes; differing site conditions; environmental issues; subrogation claims; complex insurance coverage issues; easements and condemnation matters; payment claims; construction defects; design deficiencies; and indoor air quality issues.

TECHNOLOGY FOR FASTER, COST-EFFECTIVE LEGAL SERVICES

As construction law is often about document management in a litigious environment, we have invested heavily in an innovative document management system and have developed substantial experience in eDiscovery, both of which save our clients costs and time.

We bring efficiency, predictability, and consistency to the often costly task of eDiscovery. Our advanced toolset helps us streamline all phases of eDiscovery, including data mapping, identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, analytics, and production.

We also have extensive experience with predictive coding and other forms of advanced analytics that can be leveraged in document-intensive matters. Our dedicated team of technical specialists combine practical experience with technical know-how to achieve optimal results. Clients benefit from our successful track record in negotiating eDiscovery protocols, conducting custodial interviews, taking/defending eDiscovery depositions, prosecuting/defending eDiscovery motions, working with forensic experts and managing outside vendors.
