Our construction team has the necessary breadth of knowledge to be able to assist clients on all aspects of a development from the initial stages of a project through to handing purchasers their much-awaited keys.
We advise developers of both large and small projects, as well as lenders, Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar and construction companies. Having been involved in over 90% of the developments which have been built in Gibraltar in the last 10 years, our expertise ranges from advice on JCT/FIDIC contracts, to advising clients with any issues that arise during the planning phase, the construction phase or indeed post-construction. Our litigation team is also well placed to assist on any disputes which arise and have been involved in several landmark judgments and adjudications recently.
The team assists clients in matters of development finance where we can assist on both the financing side and the construction elements when liaising with financing institutions.
The construction team at Hassans has played a leading role in the development of the local commercial and residential real estate market since the early 90s, a time when Gibraltar experienced a boom in construction of developments designed to provide unprecedented levels of home ownership and the creation of the commercial real estate which form the bedrock of the jurisdiction’s transition to the successful services economy it is today.
Offering a strong connection to the local construction industry and business network, our team assists clients in getting the deal done and seeing projects through to successful completion.
