Construction

Construction contracts form an integral part of the economy and development of many countries and Bahrain is no exception. The number of construction projects and related contracts has increased substantially in the Gulf over the last decade and Bahrain in particular has witnessed an unprecedented construction boom. This development inevitably involves the drawing up of the internationally recognized agreements between the involved parties and amongst other things the disputes either between contractors and owners/employers or between contractors and sub-contractors. As a consequence of this, focus on construction law in Bahrain is increasing.

Our firm provides specialist contentious and non-contentious advice covering the local and international construction market. We are instructed on projects involving complex aspects of the construction industry sector, acting at different instances for project sponsors, banks, financiers, contractors and other representatives of the industry.

As construction documentation constantly needs to comply with the requirements of banks and financiers, our experience in both construction and project finance translates into a unique ability to balance the interests of contractors, sponsors and financing institutions. With regard to construction claims, we have a team of dispute specialists in local litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution with extensive experience on all aspects of Bahrain Court procedures, advocacy and general conduct of arbitration proceedings governed by international and local rules and alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as local mediation and expert appointment.
