Construction Law

Our real estate and construction team has a broad geographical coverage in Norway, with a total group of 30 experts.

Building something new or altering an existing structure is often a complicated and costly process. Many different parties and professional disciplines are often involved. A successful project depends on good organisation. In order to achieve this, correct contract regulation and good follow-up are crucial.

In major projects, the contract regulation and contractual basis are extensive and complex. It is necessary to have competent and experienced advisors with a thorough knowledge of the involved parties’ needs and the relevant standard contracts.

Simonsen Vogt Wiig assists principals, contractors and consultants in various kinds of construction contracts. Our assistance includes negotiations, signing of contracts, management of the contract during construction, assistance in connection with final settlement and handling of warranty disputes and issues involving subsequent deficiencies.

They are dedicated, service-minded and understand the client’s commercial point of view, offering high-quality construction expertise along the way with litigation expertise when it is not possible to solve the dispute amicably.
