About Us

Our ethos

Originally founded in 1838 we have over 180 years’ experience providing specialist legal advice to the construction, engineering, infrastructure and insurance sectors. With over 60 lawyers spread across offices in London, Bristol, Dublin and Dubai, we deliver an innovative and international service to our clients wherever they may be.

In an ever-changing legal market it has never been more important to maintain a high quality specialist service. We have a reputation for working to the highest standards and have thrived in response to a demand that has grown exponentially over the past 25 years.

Our approach is always consistent: we understand the often technically complex issues, identify solutions and implement an appropriate strategy to achieve a successful outcome. Our lawyers are experts in their field and have a genuine understanding of the industries in which they operate.

Moreover, our relative size combined with tight lines of communication makes us extremely agile and able to respond quickly and efficiently to demand. This means that the client gets a high quality and cost-efficient end-to-end service – all the way from briefing to resolution.

Our sectors and services

Recognised as being leaders in advising construction, engineering, infrastructure and insurance companies, our people possess unrivalled legal knowledge of these sectors. From vast international projects to the domestic market, we have got what it takes to efficiently handle whatever is required.

The ethos of our firm lies in being Partner-led. That does not mean our Partners do all the work (unless you want them to), but that they take total responsibility for quality control and proper supervision of the case to ensure that our clients’ needs are understood and met. It is the application of their experience, knowledge and commercial approach, along with the competency of our lawyers, that achieves the best outcome.

Whether it is managing complex international arbitration proceedings; professional indemnity disputes; claims handling; corporate and commercial matters; or contracts and projects advisory services, we can handle it – all with an emphasis on finding a positive resolution to satisfy our clients.

Key to our relationship is the fact they will take the time to talk through the matters rather than simply issue written legal responses which can always be misinterpreted by non-legally qualified individuals. This allows for me to do my job more efficiently and ultimately more appropriately.
