• Construction law is a body of law that deals with matters relating to building construction and related fields (Wikipedia). It covers a wide range of legal issues including contract law, bonds and bonding, guarantees and sureties, liens and other security interests, tendering, construction claims, and related consultancy contracts. Construction law affects many participants in the construction industry, including financial institutions, surveyors, architects, builders, engineers, construction workers, and planners.

    As construction is a highly regulated industry and a great deal of planning needs to take place before building work starts, a great deal of construction law is administrative and non-adversarial.
