Construction Law Firms: Construction Lawyers Perth Announces Providing Construction Law Services to Perth Community

Construction Lawyers Perth (CLP) is a Legal, Engineering and Quantity Surveying firm that provides a full-service portfolio of professional support services to clients involved in project development across the building, infrastructure, rail and bus transportation, telecommunications, renewable energy, mining, and oil and gas industries.

CLP Directors hold multiple unique qualifications in engineering, quantity surveying, project management, and law. They are members of numerous professional organizations, including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, the Resolution Institute of Australia, the Project Management Institute of Australia, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers, and are also registered lawyers.

CLP’s breadth of expertise across the Project Development Lifecycle, encompasses Project Financing, Design Engineering, Project Management, Project Controls and Scheduling, Construction, Commissioning, Commercial Management and the Law, which uniquely positions them to engage with a wide range of participants involved in disputes who need assistance developing construction claims relying on experts with complete understanding of industry-specific language and terminology. You do not need to assemble and manage a claims and legal team; CLP can identify the key elements of a dispute and prepare a solid technical-legal strategy to substantiate or defend against any claim. This results in shorter claim preparation times and reduced overall dispute resolution costs.

CLP reviews contracts end to end, including technical documents and price schedules, ensuring the review is not restricted to legal clause interpretation. They also provide day-to-day commercial management advice on notification of scope changes and strategies to overcome exclusion and time-bar clauses. Once the right to a claim is established, they also review the direct cost and impact on the critical path to decide on the appropriate delay claim substantiation methodology (time slice, time impact analysis, windows analysis, etc.).

The CLP team have extensive knowledge of the application of contract management and alternative dispute resolution methods and procedures, including Engineer’s Determinations, Amicable Settlement Facilitation (Conciliation), and acting on the more formal claims under the Security of Payments Act (we are Adjudicators in several states), and we also act in arbitration and litigation proceedings.

Construction Lawyers Perth offers whole lifecycle support to those navigating the intricacies of the construction industry. Their comprehensive services are indispensable to anyone involved in construction projects. With a team of seasoned engineers and quantity surveyors who are as just passionate about construction as they are about the law,  the firm is a vital partner for your success. Their expertise, dedication, and community-focused approach ensure that their clients survive and thrive in the challenging world of developing projects in the 21st Century.


General Counsel of a large Government Authority on a Rail Mega-Project

"They had access to a building full of lawyers against the two of us. Three years into the project not only the contractor had made us think that we were culpable for the extensive delays to the project, but we were very concerned we were liable for paying the large amounts of money claimed for delay and disruption. Albert's involvement changed all that, he took a deep dive examining the documented history of the project by reviewing in detail every document produced from the tender stage and determining their value from engineering, scheduling, and contract viewpoints. Andre found that the Main Contractor had implemented substantial deviations from the agreed execution plan in the contract immediately after contract award and that these unauthorised changes had delayed the ‘freezing’ of the design from the 3 months’ commitment in the contract to almost 2 years, substantiating the delays we were allegedly responsible for were instead self-inflicted. His presentation of the defence strategy to the City Mayor, CEO and upper management reinvigorated us and gave us the strength to fight back. Andre's reports and delay analysis showing that the claimed delay events were not in the critical path allowed us to reach a fair settlement of all claims for a fraction of the amounts claimed."
