Construction and engineering

The construction and engineering sector is having to respond to changing global economic conditions and, more fundamentally, a pace of technological innovation which the industry has never witnessed before.

BIM, Drones, Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence are new tools of the trade. The built environment itself is changing with intangibles such as energy performance, wellbeing, connectivity, and cybersecurity pushing "bricks and mortar" to the side and taking central stage. 5G is revolutionising every construction and engineering project across all industries and regions.

In this new and exciting era, we are committed to not only providing you with commercial, practical, and legally sound construction advice, but also to offer creative solutions which push the boundaries between construction contracts and technology contracts.

Our international team is rich in multi-disciplinary experience, having worked on major regeneration projects and in the development of Smart Cities.

Our construction and technology lawyers often work as one team in developing forward-looking solutions, which tackle head on the additional risks around intellectual property rights, collaboration arrangements, performance targets, security requirements, data protection and the often-outpaced regulatory regimes.

We are determined that the technological revolution in construction will only bring you new opportunities and we’ll work in step with you to navigate the rapidly evolving sector.
