Fenwick Elliott is thrilled to have been announced as Legal Firm of the Year at the FIDIC Contract Users’ Conference.

The awards recognise excellence in the use of FIDIC contract forms for project delivery and showcase examples of good practice through collaboration from across the world.

The judges praised our role in “going above and beyond the norm” in providing education and training on legal issues related to the FIDIC suite of contracts, as well as our ability to “work proactively with clients to avoid disputes.”

We view FIDIC as a critical component in the successful delivery of major programmes of work across the globe. We are proud to have worked with our clients on the application of the FIDIC suite of contracts worldwide, and to have been asked to support FIDIC in its initiatives.”
