Our Construction and Engineering Team is one of the largest in the UK. The team deals with all aspects of law impacting on the construction industry.

We act for a wide range of public and private sector clients, including professionals, contractors, developers, sub-contractors, owner occupiers and financial institutions.

Our main focus is in the resolution of disputes, but we also have a breadth of experience in the drafting of contracts and the due diligence associated with the funding of commercial developments.

We regularly run training sessions and seminars on a wide range of topics affecting those businesses in the industry or working with the industry. 

For further information or to arrange a meeting please contact Stefan Harris-Wright or another member of the Construction and Engineering Team.


We produce a variety of newsletters covering changes in legislation, topical news and issues affecting our clients. You can download the latest issue of Cornerstone, our newsletter for those working in the construction industry, from our newsletter page. If you would like to automatically receive future issues please register your details.

Birketts treat you as if you are their only client. They are quick to respond and keep you updated regularly. You never feel that any question or query is insignificant and they take your concerns seriously. A standout point for me is they set expectations from the start. They give clear timeframes as to when you can expect them to deliver the service and they meet the deadlines.
