Building and Construction
Our firm provides select legal advice on building and construction services for the building and development industry - an area of practice which is constantly changing.
The Building and Construction Industry Payments Act (BCIPA) is an example of a recent legislative amendment in relation to the construction industry and associated service industries are still coming to terms.
Our lawyers advise on contractual conditions, documentation and construction disputes - from alternative dispute resolution procedures to defect rectification and negligence claims. Our emphasis is always on taking a commercial approach based on sound knowledge and judgement.
Our team complements our property practice which often requires construction-oriented litigation support. This can involve District and Supreme Court litigation but often the jurisdiction for the dispute is the Tribunal set up under the relevant Act.
This area of law is likely to see further change and legislative amendment as the legislature attempts to keep pace with industry developments.
