The construction and construction insurance markets have been thrown into turmoil by the social distancing measures brought into place to control Covid-19, with  many issues arising specifically as a result of social distancing measures as well as the closure of many business operations and large scale construction projects.

Hardwicke’s leading Construction Team is perfectly placed to deal with these, both in relation to domestic and international projects.  We are skilled at handling both domestic and international cases and you can find details of our experience here.  Information regarding issues specifically linked to Covid-19 is set out in the links below.

We are particularly known for our expertise in construction insurance with the team having written two of the key texts in the area.  Insurance specific information can be found both on our Insurance practice page and in the Insurance tab in our Covid-19 Resources hub.

Our expertise in related areas such as Commercial Dispute Resolution, Insolvency, Insurance, Mediation & ADR and Property can be seen on our practice pages and these areas also have Covid-19 related content which you can review by clicking on the relevant tab on left hand side of this page.
