Construction and engineering

Complex construction and engineering projects, and disputes avoidance and management, require legal advisers with the experience and commercial expertise to ensure deals are delivered on time and problems resolved in a straightforward and commercial manner.

Our Construction and Engineering team in Singapore provide a full range of contentious and non-contentious advice to the construction engineering and energy sector, both in Singapore and the South East Asia region. With offices around the world in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, we are able to offer a comprehensive legal solution to any delivery issues on major projects.

We act for governments, public and professional bodies, multinational and major national corporations, and developers, contractors and consultants. We have experience in advising all sectors of the market from the rail industry to power generation businesses. Our experience on international construction, energy and infrastructure projects gives us the breadth and calibre of expertise you require.

Our lawyers have advised on many prominent projects in Singapore, including the Singapore Management University Campus, the New National Library Building, One Marina Boulevard and the Singapore Flyer. We have also been involved in the development of one of the largest and most prominent projects in Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort. The participants in this project include leading real estate developers, world renowned consultants and international contractors involving a myriad of procurement methods.

Apart from such commercial and public projects, our lawyers have advised developers in many of their residential projects in Singapore and abroad like China and Vietnam. In addition, we have advised international owners and contractors in the procurement of their plant and port projects in Singapore, in particular on Jurong Island, as well as advised on disputes on infrastructure projects in Singapore.

On the contentious side, our team has extensive experience in litigation, arbitration, adjudication and mediations not only in Singapore, but also in Europe, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Sudan, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Indonesia. We have acted as counsel in domestic and international arbitrations and litigation between owners, contractors and consultants. These matters relate to disputes on cost and time claims, defects, enforcement of warranties, indemnities and bonds and other common construction disputes and include international arbitrations arising out of the oil and gas industry that in recent times have chosen Singapore as a forum for arbitration.
