PROPERTY DEVELOPERS
Fouad Deiri, Managing Director

“I continue to place my trust in Jessica because she is a strategic thinker. She has an excellent understanding of my company and foresees risks before anyone else. I feel that I can talk to Jessica honestly and frankly about legal issues as and when they arise and always feel supported by her advice.

Jessica and the team at Construction Legal cannot be recommended enough.”

“With each subcontract negotiation, Construction Legal manage our risk profile and are thorough in investigating and raising potential issues for our project team to be aware of and manage in their contract implementation.

Jessica and the team at Construction Legal are a valuable part of our business and their dedication and reliability should be applauded.”
