Construction Group

WongPartnership's Construction group has enjoyed top-tier rankings and accolades by leading legal publications such as Chambers, Legal 500 and IFLR1000 from as early as 2003. The group has also been consistently recognised as an “Outstanding Firm” for Construction and Infrastructure in Singapore by Asialaw Profiles, and “Construction Firm of the Year” by both Benchmark Litigation and Asian-mena Counsel.

Boasting the largest construction legal practice in Singapore (spread across 2 dedicated practices, Infrastructure, Construction & Engineering practice and Energy, Projects & Construction practice), the group is well-positioned to offer a deep bench of specialised practitioners, which includes 2 Senior Accredited Specialists and 2 Accredited Specialists appointed by the Singapore Academy of Law, who advise and represent a range of industry players on the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious construction work.

The size of our Construction group means we are able to take on urgent briefs, complex, high profile and technically challenging construction advisory work and disputes, whilst remaining relevant and versatile in the domestic space. Our clients consistently look to us for value and quality service.

Led by our senior practitioners who count amongst the most highly-rated in the country, the group’s and individuals’ experience, knowledge and expertise are constantly tapped. Notably, our lawyers are contributors to various standard form contracts adopted locally, such as the Public Sector Standard Conditions of Contract (PSSCOC), REDAS Design & Build form and the Singapore Contractors Association Limited (SCAL) Conditions of Sub-Contract, and have played key roles in the development of industry-led initiatives such as the Singapore Infrastructure Dispute-Management Protocol (SIDP) and the upcoming Construction Law Protocols. The group is often invited to speak at industry events, seminars, conferences and webinars and contributes to various publications and newsletters. Deeply committed to raising the standard of industry awareness and knowledge, our practitioners constantly publish industry updates, with some taking on roles as educators in the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Academy.
