Building & Construction Legal Services Melbourne

Building & Construction

Who we are and how we can help you:

Our building and construction lawyers specialise in both front end (contracts and agreements) and back end (dispute resolution, legislative and regulatory requirements) in relation to both domestic and commercial building matters.

Our lawyers have a clear and practical understanding of all types of project, appropriate documentation, and the key commercial and legal project drivers. This enables us to deliver innovative solutions and provide commercially effective advice for the smooth management of any type of project.

We understand that disputes can delay projects and result in substantial cost breakouts.  With this in mind we work with you to resolve disputes as quickly as possible in order to minimise disruption to your business and your projects.  Wherever possible our approach is mediation before resorting to litigation.
