Our Construction Group has a deep and commercially focussed understanding of the construction industry, and of the particular interests of the various parties to any project. This expertise has been gained through acting on high profile transactions for developers, principals, governments, contractors, major subcontractors, engineering and architectural consultants as well as banks in Australia and the world. We also work closely with a variety of other advisers on major projects which enable us to understand and address non-legal issues that arise in every project such as financial and technical issues.
We deal with risk allocation in construction contracts; minimise disputation in a fair, balanced and commercially realistic manner; and provide appropriate risk protection to the principal and contractor. We strive to deliver the required result for the project whilst managing the cost and time risks in the preparation of contract documentation.
Our diverse skills enable us to provide a complete and seamless service, ranging from entire project management to smaller scale advice work. We work closely with our taxation, corporate, property and employment law practice groups to deliver effective results for clients. With international projects, we work closely with the Baker McKenzie offices throughout the Asia Pacific region and elsewhere in the world.
