KCL Law’s Construction and Infrastructure

Highly regarded for their expertise in construction law, KCL Law’s Construction and Infrastructure team and Darren Cain, Principal Lawyer and Head of Construction and Infrastructure, are industry experts who understand the market and the drivers that determine successful project outcomes.

We act for property developers, builders, contractors and subcontractors to advise them on all aspects of a construction project (both ‘front-end’ and ‘back-end’), including:

  • bids, tender preparation and negotiations;
  • key risk allocation (design and construction);
  • drafting all manner of project specific contractual documentation and agreements;
  • claims management and dispute resolution; and
  • adjudication under the Security of Payment Act.

Having been involved in many of Victoria’s landmark court cases, KCL Law’s Construction and Infrastructure team have a reputation as a leading firm in relation to adjudications under the Security of Payment Act and have been recommended for construction and infrastructure litigation in the Doyle’s Construction Guide 2018.
