Construction and engineering

Overview

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

  • BIM, Drones, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence are new tools of the trade.
  • The built environment itself is changing with intangibles such as energy performance, wellbeing, connectivity, cybersecurity (to name but a few) pushing "bricks and mortar" to the side and taking central stage.(this sentence didn't make much sense so I've turned it round a little?
  • 5G is just around the corner and is set to be the revolutionary enabler for every construction and engineering project across all industries, regions and jurisdictions.

In this new and exciting era, we are committed not only to 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 Construction & Engineering team spans Europe, Asia and the Middle East and is rich in experience from supporting clients across a wide range of industry sectors, as well as on major regeneration projects and in the development of Smart Cities.

What sets us apart is our knowledge and experience of work on projects which are technologically complex or have innovative components. Our construction and technology lawyers often work as one team in developing solutions, greatly inspired by the technology world, which tackles head on the additional risks of modern and complex projects particularly around intellectual property rights, collaboration arrangements, performance targets, security requirements, data protection and the often outpaced regulatory regimes.

In short, as a leading international law firm in technology we are determined that the technological revolution in construction will only bring new opportunities for our clients, not threats.
