Construction & Engineering

We are leading lawyers to the Hong Kong construction industry who support a range of stakeholders in the development, engineering, construction and operation of energy, infrastructure and building projects throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Our services include:

  • establishing consortia
  • negotiating concession arrangements
  • preparing or reviewing tender and contract documents
  • providing project counsel advice on claims and other issues that arise during construction and operation
  • representing clients in mediation, domestic and international arbitration, and litigation proceedings

Our experience spans a variety of projects such as power plants, electricity transmission facilities, oil and gas installations, marine and reclamation projects, tunnels, airports, railroads, highways, viaducts, waste facilities and water supply facilities.

Clients obtain the benefit of lawyers with engineering and construction backgrounds which proves invaluable when structuring, negotiating, and drafting complex, technical project documentation and in resolving disputes.

We know that project profit margins are often finely balanced, so we work closely with clients to devise and implement fee arrangements that are proportionate to the size of the project or the quantum of disputed claims.
