Construction - China

Leading the way across Asia

King & Wood Mallesons’ construction team is a leader in China and more broadly across Asia.

With construction law experts in China, as well as Hong Kong and across Australia, we offer our clients an unrivalled depth of experience across the related areas of energy and natural resources, environment, project finance, property and corporate.

Our experience is not confined to any particular part of the Construction sector, we advise on industrial projects, infrastructure projects as well as large scale commercial and residential developments.  No matter the project we aim to provide our clients tailored solutions which meet their commercial targets.

We balance risk with your commercial objectives

The narrow commercial margins in the construction industry in China mean that managing and resolving contractual and legal issues is key in achieving commercial success.  Even more fundamentally, no matter how complex a project is, at its heart it is a balance of risk and commercial objectives.

Our lawyers are trained to think about how to effectively share and manage risk on the projects and transactions on which we advise.  That unique perspective assists us to provide project outcomes which not only reflect our clients risk appetite, but also are bankable. In that respect our team are skilled in ensuring the appropriate allocation of construction risks to the party or parties best placed to manage those risks, so ensuring that the relevant project is bankable from a construction risk perspective.  

We advise project sponsors, construction companies, SOEs, lenders, financial institutions & investors on:

  • Construction contracts
  • Design and construction as well as design agreements
  • Cross-border construction
  • Construction – contentious.
"The team has a solid energy and natural resources practice with excellent quality of work and advice."
