Few would dispute the crucial importance of the construction industry to the UK economy. The construction solicitor team at Prettys provides expert advice to this sector. Our construction lawyers have extensive knowledge of legal issues affecting this type of business.

From our homes and workplaces to the roads and railways that transport us, it is the construction sector that is a key facilitator and illustrator of growth whilst employing approximately 10% of the UK workforce and contributing almost £90 billion yearly to the UK economy.

From multiple reliable sources we now hear tales of the industry’s resurgence, with some even going so far as to warn that construction demand will rocket if the positive mood continues.

As work picks up and the green shoots of recovery establish themselves, give us the opportunity to show you what a trusted and valuable adviser we can be for your business.

For clients with international dealings, we have the experience and overseas connections to help you. Prettys is also a member of Galexy the international association of lawyers.
