Performance of a construction contract is a complex process that requires ongoing management. In the Russian environment, relations between contractors involved in a construction project are affected by noncompliance with compulsory management control procedures and complex regulatory requirements related to different branches of law (civil, zoning, land). Generally, at a certain stage during the construction project, these factors give rise to disputes between the contracting parties. In addition, there may be conflicts with the government agencies regulating construction work and overall project acceptance. Continued efficiency throughout the construction project lifecycle therefore depends essentially on advanced managerial control, preventative action, diagnostics and problem solving. Therefore both contracting parties must take a proactive approach and file claims in a timely manner.

We use a combination of professional skills in our Construction Project Management group and lawyers employed in Ernst & Young’s Tax & Legal practice, which give us industry-specific insight into the construction business and the flexibility to take into account complex legal regulations. We offer our clients strong support throughout the construction project lifecycle, negotiation assistance, contractual administration and claim management.
