The Clifford Chance Construction Group provides specialist support to clients in the development of procurement strategies and in the analysis and allocation of construction risk. The Group is unique among the leading law firms in its size and specialist focus and is consistently recognized as a market leader.
The Group is involved in all sectors of the construction industry, including infrastructure, energy, oil and gas and real estate, allowing a seamless sharing of ideas and resources across those sectors. This thought leadership has translated into a wide range of briefings and workshop materials which are updated from time to time.
We operate at the leading edge of the technological, policy and legal trends which shape the construction industry. For example, we are deeply involved in renewable and new nuclear energy and in carbon reduction technology, and are constantly developing new contracting concepts and structures to meet the changing needs of our clients.
Our clients include public and private sector developers, funders, contractors, end-users and service and technology providers. While acting for one participant in the construction process, we can therefore understand the perspective of the others.
We operate globally and can make available specialist teams on demand in any location. Our network of offices and relationship law firms enables us to blend our specialist skills with the legal and business cultures of the project's location. Our global reach also enables us to bring a market-wide commercial perspective to each individual transaction.
We work frequently as part of a team of specialists drawn from across the firm's industry and practice groups and understand how the construction element fits into the wider context of a complex transaction. We maintain especially close links with the firm's Arbitration, Energy & resources, PPP/PFI, and Real Estate groups.
