Projects, Infrastructure & Construction
All business ventures and activities carry risk
None more so than in the fields of major projects, infrastructure and construction.
Whether you are funding, supplying, designing and constructing, servicing or otherwise operating in the built environment, or in infrastructure and the connectivity of things, the change and innovation you’re seeing in terms of modern methods of construction, the digital economy, integrated procurement and delivery partnerships, globalisation of supply chains, new funding structures and alternative forms of dispute resolution are just some of the areas that you will need to understand and navigate to manage your risk and reward.
You want to feel confident that you have fully understood those risks and have allocated responsibility fairly and appropriately, so that risks can be managed successfully as one successful team, for everyone’s shared success – for your clients, customers, employees, supply chain and your other stakeholders.
To assess risk and navigate a path through risk to success, whatever that looks like for you, you need trusted legal advisors who know you inside and out, so that you participate in your chosen market as one successful team.
Why choose Foot Anstey
Our aim is simple. We want to work with you as an extension of your team, to truly get to know your business and offer advice that works for you.

Our team’s substantial expertise is extremely wide-ranging. We can support you on your projects from cradle to grave. Some of our lawyers are also trained engineers and surveyors, so we have additional senior management and technical experience outside of the legal sector and a deep operational understanding of the issues you might face.
Having worked on some of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects, as well as major international projects, our team are recognised as experts in their subject area – we speak at conferences on legal issues affecting those involved on major projects, as well as at events organised by other construction industry professional bodies, such as the Society of Construction Law, Constructing Excellence, TECBAR and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. We are plugged into leading industry bodies and organisations who are at the very forefront of innovation and change in the UK’s infrastructure sector.
