As one of the largest and best known construction groups in Scotland, we can provide outstanding breadth and depth of experience to our clients. No other firm in Scotland has such strong connections with all sectors of the Scottish construction industry. We are widely recognised as leading experts in our field. So much so that we produced the first authoritative textbook on construction law in Scotland, “MacRoberts on Scottish Construction Contracts”, the third edition of which has recently been published.
Our award winning team advises at all stages of the construction process, from advice on appropriate forms of procurement, including drafting and negotiation of contracts, through to contract and claims advice aimed at dispute avoidance and management and, if necessary, formal dispute resolution procedures. These includes mediation, adjudication, court proceedings, arbitration and expert determination.
We regularly act in teams involving designers, quantity surveyors, funders, planners and claims advisers and we work collaboratively to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients. We understand our clients’ commercial aims and add value not only through our legal insight but also by applying extensive practical experience to identify and manage risk appropriately. By thinking ahead and anticipating potential problems, we identify areas for our clients where difficulties could arise. By addressing them at the start of a project, we aim to reduce the likelihood of costly problems at a later stage.
Solely devoted to construction work, our approachable team can provide straightforward advice to all sectors of the construction market. Our clients include public sector bodies, private developers, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, professionals and insurers operating in all areas of the construction industry. This means we can fully understand your requirements and you can be confident of a focused and cost-efficient service.
