Building law is specific and different from other types of law, not all commercial lawyers will have sufficient experience or knowledge to assist you fully.
At PCL we understand that the value of commercial projects and the relationship factors between both the builder, landowner and suppliers, consultants and contractors can make managing disputes more complicated than others.
Where a dispute arises mid-build, it is essential for the financial viability and ongoing commercial relationship that it is handled with consideration to these commercial factors. Our commercial building lawyers are experienced in handling these matters with the right measure and force, and can work within any limitations you require, in order to preserve relationships with other parties.

Emma Restall and her team in the construction division of PCL are amazing. Emma has helped educate myself and team on legislation and advise to ultimately improve my businesses output and bottomline. I would highly recommend Emma to anyone seeking an expert in the Building & Construction industry.
I contacted PCL Lawyers over a dispute with the home inspector involved in the purchase of my home in 2020. Emma Restall and Tayla Williamson worked my case for over two years – right through the pandemic – until we reached a (confidential) settlement without having to go to court. I know I couldn’t have achieved this outcome without their assistance, although I never imagined at the start how long it would take or how much it could cost to see this matter through. Emma and Tayla were wonderful to work with: they listened carefully to my situation and needs, tailored their advice to my situation, communicated quickly and clearly, and worked relentlessly towards the goal. Thank you Emma, Tayla, and the whole PCL team!
Highly professional and very human all at the same time!
Under stressful circumstances, Emma and PCL guided me through the whole process, with experienced counsel, advice and of course, empathy. And most of all, we achieved the result we were all happy with. I would thoroughly recommend them moving forward and wouldn’t hesitate to engage again.
