Procurement and Transactions


We provide advice to government and private enterprise on the provision of social and economic infrastructure assets and services.

In particular, we utilise our experience in the use of non-traditional forms of contracting, such as design and construct; alliance contracting; service outsourcing; design, build, operate (DBO) and build, own, operate, transfer (BOOT).

  • We manage specialist consultants, advisors and contractors to ensure that contracts are effectively packaged, procured and implemented to service your business needs. The failure of contractual arrangements can often be attributed to a lack of consideration in allocating risks and/or a lack of clarity in specifying expectations.
  • We apply practical industry experience in guiding you and your legal and financial advisors through relevant contractual issues including commercial principles, risk management, contractual scope, contract forms, contract documentation and claims analysis and management.
