Building & Construction Lawyers in Sydney

In the midst of a massive construction boom that many consider as totally unprecedented, Sydney and its residents are currently experiencing the full impact of the eruption of construction activities.

Tower cranes, heavy equipment and construction workers are everywhere. Some news headlines even say “Sydney has turned into one giant construction site”.

With almost $5 billion worth of projects now in full swing, Sydney’s CBD is expected to look more dense and vastly different in the coming years with new office towers slowly emerging.

And the boom is not just limited to modern skyscrapers. Residential construction is also currently on the uptick.

In this environment, it is common to see disputes between builders and homeowners happen. When these things happen, the best course of action is to settle disputes or look for professionals who specialise in construction dispute resolution.

When to Call Doyles Construction Lawyers

There are countless situations that may call for professional legal advice. The following are some of the most common reasons building contractors call Doyles for help:

When suing or being sued – Launching a lawsuit or responding to one without effective legal representation is usually highly inadvisable. Construction companies know that with decades of experience, Doyles are the ones to call when lawsuits rear their ugly head.

Claims of defective construction – This is one of the most common types of construction-related litigation. An experienced construction lawyer can help clarify a complex situation and perhaps even enable you to avoid litigation altogether.

On-the-job injuries – In recent years serious construction-related accidents have been greatly reduced. But they still happen from time to time. An experienced construction industry lawyer can help prevent an injury claim from devolving into an unseemly, drawn-out courtroom drama.

Contractual actions – Any time clients feel it necessary to invoke a feature of the contract such as an escalation or termination clause it is best to seek the advice of an experienced construction attorney.
