About our services

We provide services for all forms of commercial agreements, construction and building projects. We can advise you on your commercial lease, and how it may work with a construction obligation.

Traditionally construction law services have been divided into new construction agreements and construction disputes. We are experienced in both. New construction agreements are the inception of your project. Here you would expect to develop a robust set of documents that tell you what you will get for the money you will be paying. There may be other documents for third parties such as your bank or a neighbour. These documents must be well thought through and be compatible with each other, or ‘back-to-back’ as it is sometimes put. Standard form documents are regularly used, although often amended. Most building work has a standard form building contract such as the JCT.

Construction is about building prototypes. This means there is a risk of unknown conditions perhaps within the foundations or during design development. Risk can incur costs and costs need to be allocated. Construction dispute law resolves issues about costs, delays and design problems. The construction industry has promoted the use of construction agreement settlement using adjudication, a quicker and cheaper but less exacting process than litigation or arbitration. We are experienced in the many forms of commercial and construction dispute settlement.

"I would highly recommend John Philpott. My company employed him on a recommendation and we were not let down in any way at all. John is very approachable and easily guided me around all legal matters concerning my case. I thank him for this and the fact that he bought my case to a very successful conclusion." Aamir Ali, Blackstone Construction and Design.

"I would have no hesitation in recommending Graftons to any prospective client. It was very obvious from the offset, that John is immensely knowledgeable and experienced with all the legal aspects of construction, and in our case JCT contracts. This resulted in accurate and concise advice. This was equally reflected in the fees, not something I would often say about solicitors." Nikesh Radia, Goldhawk House Group.
