Africa’s rapid economic growth has occurred despite the continent’s significant infrastructure deficit –​​ with the largest infrastructure deficits in road and power. Over the next decade, construction projects related to infrastructure, energy and natural resources, will be key focus areas of development.

Our team provides holistic ‘turn-key’ solutions when advising on all aspects of the project life cycle in various capacities, including advising clients procuring construction services directly, project developers, contractors and complementary service providers. In our experience, the most important facet of project development, aside from underlining technical and financial feasibility, is risk management.

We advise on all construction-related matters including advice on procurement strategies, advice on which contracts to use, advice on drafting and/or negotiating bespoke or standard form contracts (NEC to FIDIC, JBCC to GCC, iChemE to JCT). We also help clients engage with regulators and untangle applicable legislation.

We provide support in managing and administering claims as well as working with our clients to ensure that areas of possible dispute are minimised and, where they do emerge, are resolved as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We have advised on all stages of construction projects. The practice area focuses on structuring, drafting & negotiating project agreements, and project finance. Here, we have represented clients in the transport, telecommunications, power generation, and real estate sectors.
