Building & Construction

Fisher Jeffries has specialist knowledge in this area, having worked with our clients on large capital works or infrastructure projects and on many smaller projects over the course of several decades. Our lawyers are committed to understanding the businesses of our clients and the work involved in a particular project. We recognise that a hands on approach and a genuine understanding of the subject matter of the project is often necessary to achieve the best solution for our clients. We commonly assist our clients with the following:

  • identifying and evaluating legal and commercial risks and issues with the potential to impact project service delivery;
  • the preparation of tender documents;
  • the drafting, negotiation and review of construction contracts, sub-contracts and supply contracts;
  • due diligence investigations in relation to complex projects addressing construction law issues and litigation risks;
  • contract administration and claims;
  • regulatory compliance matters, including building safety and occupational safety legislation;
  • disputes, whether in Court or in an alternative dispute resolution process;
  • claims under the Workers Liens Act; and
  • Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act claims.

Many factors can impact on the appropriate framework for such transactions and on desired outcomes of disputes.
