Construction and infrastructure

Experienced advisors acting on New Zealand’s most significant construction, development and infrastructure projects in the public and private sector.

Our multi-disciplinary team advises principals, contractors, consultants, suppliers and funders on transactional and contentious matters. We are acutely aware of the broader dynamics and cycles of the New Zealand construction and infrastructure industries, and have a reputation for delivering pragmatic, “best for project” advice which protects the interests of our clients and also facilitates project delivery.

Work highlights

"The team is able to not only identify the issues and possible solutions to a problem, but to go further to help us find a pathway through that issue in a way that mitigates risk and achieves our organisation’s objectives. The team has been working with our in-house team for less than two years and in my experience it is really rare to have a team so quickly understand our complex organisation’s objectives, risks and drivers in the way that Bell Gully has done."
