Construction, Development and Resources

Ellem Warren Lawyers provides its clients in the construction, development and resources industries with innovative risk management solutions and support.

Our firm has developed a package for its clients to provide these services in a variety of ways.

We appreciate that employing an in-house counsel, contracts formation specialist and contracts administrators may not be ideal or cost effective for all companies.  To assist our clients, and ensure these important commercial and risk management roles are handled appropriately, we have designed a package for the secondment of legally qualified and experienced staff with specific commercial and industry training.

In the past this has included contract formation and negotiation and contract administration assistance.  Access is also available to our team who can provide specific legal advice relevant to the mining, resources and construction industries.

Significant benefits of the program include access for clients to:

  • a team with full legal qualifications, experience and in-house commercial training;
  • access to tried-and-tested documents and procedures approved by our firm;
  • access to staff and support on a cost effective “needs” driven basis.

Our variable secondment program is a cost effective and competitive alternative to direct employment and a relatively hassle-free solution.
