Construction & Engineering

Construction and engineering disputes are at the heart of what Atkin Chambers is known for. It is the specialism on which members have built their outstanding national and international reputations over the last half century or more. Atkin Chambers won Set of the Year for Construction and Energy in The 2019 Legal 500 UK Awards for example and is consistently top ranked in both Chambers and Legal 500. as a set.

The technical and economic challenges of constructing landmark buildings and projects mean that disputes between those involved in delivering them are not infrequent. Developers, contractors, funders, insurers and construction professionals turn to the construction barristers at Atkin Chambers for advice and assistance in connection with many of the major projects of the age:

  • Wembley Stadium
  • The Lloyds Building
  • Channel Tunnel
  • House of Commons new offices
  • London Olympic Village
  • Bath Spa
  • British Library
  • Terminal 5

The complexities of construction projects also present themselves on a smaller scale: Construction barristers appreciate the unique challenges involved in helping to resolve residential disputes which arise when developments go wrong. At Atkin Chambers the members have significant experience in acting in residential construction disputes; party wall claims and nuisance actions.

What a given case requires can vary hugely. What members bring to each and every case is their familiarity with the sector and the dynamics of projects, a forensic identification of the facts and technical issues which matter, and a mastery of those, and a focused application of the relevant legal principles.
