We are leaders in the global projects space – including engineering, procurement and construction.
Higher volumes, increasing complexity, riskier markets and tougher competition and financing conditions mean major projects are more difficult to plan and execute than ever, making expert advice even more critical to successfully winning project mandates and project delivery.
Our team provides the platform for delivery to our clients of our expertise in all stages of the lifecycle of major projects. We have a track record of advising on innovative, large-scale and high-risk projects, pulling in capabilities from the firm’s various practice groups including PPP, procurement, project finance, environmental and regulatory, corporate and dispute resolution.
We are at the forefront of events in the EPC market and have led the market in developing responses to:
- increased focus on transparency and risk management
- increased attention to inherent country risks with a focus on BIT structuring and clear triggers for force majeure events
- pressures on traditional contract structures requiring innovation around risk allocation and alignment of interests to secure viable economic outcomes.
We are recognised leaders in dispute resolution – although this is a topic that clients often fear, our depth of experience in this area gives us a unique position to advise on new projects. We understand the common pitfalls and can provide guidance to ensure you don’t make the same mistakes. Our knowledge of where disputes arise enables us to identify where contracts can be improved so as to address allocation of risk comprehensively and appropriately and prevent disputes at the contracting stage.
