Work with the construction law experts

Our lawyers bring experience to your construction or building matter. Our clients in building and construction rely on us to provide accurate, timely and commercial advice and to support them through a range of complex situations with legal implications.

Whether you’re a property developer, principal contractor, subcontractor, investor or financier, our lawyers can assess the situation you’re entering into and guide you through the legal process with a solution-focussed approach.

Advice, transactional and litigation services to the construction industry

Our lawyers specialise in drafting and reviewing contracts that account for every eventuality and protect your interests. When you’re engaged in a development project, consulting with one of our experts about the contract can manage your legal and financial risk, give you peace of mind and potentially save you money in the future.

Sub-contractors and trade contractors often ask Mahoneys to review their terms of engagement and standard-form contracts, which is a wise protective measure should issues arise with financing or the scope of the work.

Construction is a litigious environment. We have the experience and the expertise to advance your position when litigation ensues.
