Graftons solicitors

Graftons provides legal services for construction projects and commercial agreements to businesses and individuals. We combine our services with a proactive approachable manner which is flexible, creative, sensitive and cost effective, focused directly on you.

We are solicitors in London but by no means London-centric. Our expertise reflects wide experience of business and the construction industry. We are familiar with general commercial contracts, the construction process and technicalities, construction law, construction agreements, construction disputes, building contracts, the financing of construction, and a wide range of construction and building areas such as standard form contracts, like the JCT. If you have never heard of the JCT no matter, we can still help you whether your needs be large or small.

We take time to listen, and to explain commercial and construction law with honest advice. If you need it we are also experienced in commercial and construction contract management, adjudication and litigation.

We are members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) and the Technology & Construction Solicitors’ Association (TeCSA). We can act as an adjudicator or mediator, and as a solicitor-advocate for County Court and High Court civil proceedings.

John Philpott of Graftons is a solicitor-advocate and barrister, and was called to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn. He is also a Chartered Structural Engineer.

We have experience of working with Arup, Atkins, Heathrow and Gatwick Airports (was BAA), Grosvenor, the NHS and London Underground, developers, contractors and sub-contractors, as well as many private individuals.

We work closely with you to build lasting relationships and to give you the confidence to recommend us through the quality of our work.

"So impressed with Graftons, as a business woman I have over the years used the services of several law firms, but I have never experienced anything like the quality and personal service that I received from John Philpott at Graftons. John was so supportive, he always took the time to explain things thoroughly which was so reassuring I would have no hesitation in recommending Graftons in the future." Ms S Petgrave, Leatherhead, Surrey.

"I wanted to write to you to say a Big Thank You for your efforts in winning my case at my adjudication. You were professional in all you did and I was confident with your advice and recommendation." Jimmy Lee, Managing Director, Myint Construction.

"I wish to thank John Philpott for his expert and much appreciated advice and guidance he gave which resulted in a successful and very satisfactory conclusion to a recent contract issue. John is so easy to work with and won my confidence and trust immediately. Highly recommended indeed. Thanks John." Patrick Clasby, Clasby Construction, Wraysbury, Surrey.
