Construction is a key component of the economy and in the development of most countries. The Middle East is a recognized world leader in this field, indeed, many would say a pioneer. Infrastructure projects in the Gulf have increased substantially in both number and sophistication over the last decade. The UAE, in particular, has witnessed a phenomenal construction boom across many sectors, including commercial, leisure, retail, education, healthcare, industrial, manufacturing, and transportation. As a consequence of this boom in construction, the focus of all major stakeholders on methods of construction procurement and construction-related laws in the Middle East is more intense than ever.

Many hold dual qualifications in law and engineering and are internationally renowned for their expertise in the construction sector.

Our long-standing experience in the region and in-depth knowledge in dealing with all types of claims under various forms of contracts, such as FIDIC, EPC and BOT/BOO are increasingly sought by our clients as part of their risk management strategy.
