We're home to one of the largest construction law groups in Scotland. No matter what challenges you face, or the stage of your project, we have the expertise to help.

We've been at the forefront of Scotland’s construction sector for over 30 years. Why? Not only do we lead the market in experience and expertise—we treat our clients' challenges as if they were our own. Today, our solicitors work with companies and individuals throughout the construction industry. This includes public sector bodies, private developers, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, professional bodies and insurers.  

We can help you with a wide range of construction matters: procurement methods, drafting and negotiating contracts (like SBCC, JCT, and NEC) or providing contract and claims advice for dispute avoidance and management. Moreover, we can advise on all types of formal dispute resolutions. Whatever construction issues you face, we'll ensure you benefit from practical, cost-effective solutions tailored to your unique needs. 

Our team will work to fully understand your commercial aims and objectives, identifying and appropriately managing risk. By doing this as early as possible, we aim to reduce the likelihood of encountering costly problems at a later stage. Working alongside designers, surveyors, funders, and advisers, we'll find comprehensive solutions you're happy with. 

Experience, attention to detail and good lawyers who are technically strong with commercial understanding.

Experts in construction contracts

Our construction solicitors are highly familiar with all standard form construction contracts. This includes SBCC, JCT, FIDIC, NEC, and GC/Works, as well as drafting contracts for major projects and framework agreements. We also handle appointment agreements, bonds, guarantees, and collateral warranties.  

Unclear contracts and misconceptions about responsibilities can be major dispute triggers. That's why we'll work closely with you to ensure contracts are clear and potential liabilities are fully understood. That way we can help prevent disputes before they arise. 

Contentious construction

The construction industry is famous for its complex disputes, so you need a legal team who knows their stuff. Our expert solicitors can help you reach swift resolutions, save money, and even nip disputes in the bud. They're highly experienced in all areas of construction, having worked for both commercial and public sector clients on a wide range of dispute issues. Regardless of your industry role or project stage, we'll skillfully pursue and defend any claim you face.  

Our work begins the moment issues arise, and we can help with all formal dispute resolutions – adjudication, arbitration, expert determination, court proceedings, and mediation. We want you to see us as your partner, rather than just your legal provider; one dedicated to tailoring solutions for every situation.
