The know how to find resolutions

DMH Stallard’s construction and engineering lawyers provide specialist advice to clients in both the private and public sectors including investors, funders, developers, contractors and professionals across the property and construction industry. Our lawyers have experience in a wide range of projects including those in the commercial, residential (including social housing and care homes), retail, leisure and process engineering sectors. The team is committed to providing you with advice and assistance at all stages of the procurement cycle including managing issues arising during the course of a project with the aim of avoiding costly formal dispute resolution. If a dispute can not be resolved then we will advise on the dispute and assist you in its resolution through the appropriate forum as cost effectively as possible.

What we do

Our construction lawyers offer you a range of services, including:

  • Advice on procurement and risk
  • Drafting and negotiation of bespoke and industry standard contracts
  • Drafting and negotiation of all other associated documentation
  • Partnering agreements
  • Drafting and negotiation of development agreements and agreements for lease
  • EU and Local Authority procurement procedures

How we do it

The combined breadth and depth of the team’s experience means that it is well placed to advise throughout the procurement cycle, from planning through to successful close out.  Our lawyers adopt a team approach to working with you and your other professional advisers, involving other specialist teams such as planning, real estate and banking as appropriate.  The team also supports other specialist teams at DMH Stallard on the sale, purchase and refinancing of property.

The team has developed strategic relationships with a number of high-profile clients with significant property portfolios and this is a reflection of its pragmatic and commercial approach.

On the dispute side, our team has experience of adjudication, mediation, litigation and both domestic and international arbitration.
