Construction and engineering law in China

The success of construction and engineering law projects in China largely depends on the elaboration of risk allocation. We understand risks inhering in all kinds of construction-related projects and have extensive experience in helping our clients identify problems, negotiate contract terms and resolve disputes effectively.

We act for Chinese state-owned companies and multinational corporations on a wide range of matters from large infrastructure projects to complex industrial facilities. Our team possesses the first class international entrepreneurial and legal skills to guide our clients through their projects not only in China but also overseas. Our cross-border expertise, industrial insights and cultural know-know contribute to successful projects around the globe.

Our construction and engineering law capability in China include:

  • power, oil and gas, clean energy and nuclear construction and engineering projects
  • large and complex infrastructure projects
  • construction disputes, including international arbitrations
  • project financing and related matters for bankable projects

We also work closely with our global construction law team, which is one of the largest construction and engineering law teams in the world, to provide seamless services to our clients to meet their specific needs in expanding or implementing projects overseas.
