Our extensive construction law experience combines with a strategic and people focused approach.

Whether it be a major construction project or a small build, we can help. We can apply our extensive construction law experience to any stage in a project from ‘front end’ drafting and negotiation through to dispute resolution.

Our industry experience includes government, local government, and private projects.

Our core construction experience is complemented with expertise in resource management, wider commercial matters, insurance, and litigation.

We are involved in the ongoing development of construction law in New Zealand, with Jared Holt currently a Council member of the Society of Construction Law (NZ).

We know that people are at the heart of successful projects, and we work hard to build and maintain strong relationships across projects and the sector.

  • Insolvency

    We are experienced in the legal and technical issues that can arise in delay and additional cost claims in construction contracts. Jared Holt (Partner) is the co-author and co-presenter of the 2023 NZLS CLE Webinar on Delay Claims.
