building, construction and engineering

Tottle Partners has repeatedly been recognised as a leading Western Australian law firm for both non-contentious and contentious construction, infrastructure and major projects work.

We have the knowledge, experience and resources to meet the strategic outcomes our clients require, including in complex litigation.

We act primarily for contractors, both Australian and multinational, on onshore and offshore projects. We also act for owners, consultants, builders and developers.

We provide advice and representation throughout the course of a project, including:

  • pre-bid, ECI and relationship based contracting advice

  • tender preparation and review

  • contract review

  • preparation and negotiation of numerous forms of contracts including relationship based, works, services, supply and hire agreements, including entire suites of template contracts and 'back-to-back' subcontracts

  • preparation of related procurement documentation

  • contract implementation advice, including preparation of project administration documentation

  • project management, risk strategy and claims management advice

  • dispute resolution, including court litigation, domestic and international arbitration, expert determination, mediation and informal contract dispute resolution

  • adjudication under security of payment legislation in various Australian jurisdictions

Our construction partners are ‘hands on’ partners who personally manage the majority of the work which our clients require.

We have long standing relationships with leading consultants, experts and counsel in all major Australian jurisdictions.
