Sectors

Real Estate and Construction


Irish commercial property sales are now showing strong growth and there is increased confidence in this sector.  We know from our clients that a growth in construction tends to lag behind a growth in property. And from our FDI clients we know that challenges such as the sometimes complex nature of the planning and planning appeals process can hamper negotiations unless handled with experience.

quotes Clients highlight that the team's "main strengths are their knowledge of the law combined with their knowledge of the practical aspect of construction."Chambers Europe, 2017

Our collaborative approach, one of Philip Lee’s real strengths, means we draw in experts like our top tier planning team whenever necessary. Indeed the calibre of advice on tax, projects and procurement too, ensures our property and construction clients feel that no challenge will be left unaddressed. We work with our clients to deliver innovative solutions in a complex and changing market.

We provide a full range of legal services that assist our clients in the purchase, sale, development, management and letting of commercial property.

  • drafting and advising on contracts for building and engineering works at all tiers
  • contracts for design consultancy services
  • construction management services
  • FM/OM services
  • collateral warranty documentation and agreements for all facets of PPP project work

 

We work with the National Development Finance Agency on many projects including the Devolved Schools Programme.  This project which is under the Capital Works Management Framework structure centres on the completion of 18 design build schools or refurbishment works throughout Ireland over the next 18 months. We also work on:

On the contentious side, the firm has advised on a variety of large scale and complex disputes arising out of some of the most significant construction projects in the country’s history, representing both public and private sector clients in construction disputes of a diverse nature. We have successfully acted as advocates in conciliation and arbitration proceedings arising from construction and civil engineering contracts, and provide strategic and commercial advice to drive an expeditious resolution of conflict and minimise the impact on projects.
