Why engage a construction lawyer from JPR?

JPR employs lawyers who specialise in construction law. Our team works with great passion and we deliver quality and accessibility with a no-nonsense approach. Several of our construction lawyers are former in-house lawyers at major contractors, so we have an inside understanding of the dynamics and interests of the construction sector.

A construction lawyer can provide support, help and advice when you need it. JPR proves that professionalism doesn’t have to be cold or distant. How do we do that? Our passionate construction lawyers understand your concerns, and set to work with great skill and enthusiasm to achieve the best outcome for you.

The difference between civil and public construction law

As mentioned earlier, various parties are affected by the extensive legal regulations that govern the construction process. In simple terms, you can divide construction law into two categories: civil construction law and public construction law. Civil construction law regulates the legal relations between natural persons or legal entities. Public construction law applies to projects involving government.
