Construction lawyers FAQs

What is a construction lawyer?

A construction lawyer works on areas of law linked to housing, infrastructure, construction and engineering work. All construction lawyers would be familiar with standard industry contracts such as JCT, NEC.

Why is a freelance construction lawyer a good way to resource your project team?

Construction legal work can be project-based and often requires a level of narrower specialism linked to the type of building works being undertaken by the client. For example, some construction lawyers might specialise in commercial real estate legal work whilst others would specialise in the construction of public structures such as schools, hospitals etc. Depending on the nature of the project, a freelance construction lawyer can be a good way to secure specialist expertise for the duration of the project rather than more general legal support.

Does Obelisk Support offer contention and non-contentious construction lawyers?

Yes. Our construction lawyers work across contentious and non-contentious construction legal matters.

Is there a minimum commitment for the construction lawyers?

No. You can work with us to have one contract reviewed or to engage a Lawyer on Demand for ongoing support. Your call!
