About Us

Kingsbourne was founded in 1990 and specialises in all aspects of construction law, quantity surveying and commercial management, planning and programming, claims and dispute resolution, including adjudication, mediation arbitration and litigation.

We have worked with many leading construction and engineering firms, across sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, the Far East, the Indian Ocean Islands, Europe and the United Kingdom. Our clients have benefitted from our professional and discreet conduct and service for many years. Assisting our clients both locally and abroad has earned us the reputation of being versatile and efficient.

Our professional team combine a vast wealth of practical experience with various qualifications in construction and law. All members of our staff have had considerable on-site experience on a wide variety of complex projects, including projects relating to roads and earthworks, civil engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering, underground and open-cast mining and building works, and in the energy sector.

Our aim is to avoid disputes and resolve problems. We do this by working closely with our clients and helping them to manage their construction projects more effectively. We focus not only on the legal issues, but we also provide hands-on, practical advice on all contractual and commercial management issues that may affect profitability, the client’s obligations and/or programme deliverables.
