Jaspal has significant experience in advising on the project contracts side of major projects including particular experience in relation to LNG, gas, power, petrochemicals and other infrastructure projects. He is an expert on construction law. He has advised owners, lenders and developers on many types of agreements including construction contracts, O&M agreements, consultants agreements, energy sale and purchase contracts, production sharing contracts, joint operating agreements, direct agreements, bonds and guarantees.

“Sources cite a deep understanding of doing business in the Middle East and strong technical skills as two of Jaspal Gillar’s strongest suits.” (Chambers Global, 2011, Middle East)

Whether we are acting on relatively simple construction schemes or highly technical projects, our clients appreciate our pragmatic and commercial approach.

We specialise in complex domestic construction and engineering projects such as commercial offices, corporate and bank headquarters, shopping centres, major international energy and infrastructure projects, PFI/PPP work, finance, insolvencies, insurance contracts, claims analysis and contentious work.

This experience gives us an excellent understanding of the wide spectrum of issues that arise across various sectors. We work closely with procurement and project delivery teams from the very start of each project, making sure all solutions meet our clients’ requirements at every step of the way.

Because our lawyers regularly draft and amend building contracts, consultancy agreements, warranties and performance securities – such as bonds and guarantees – to ensure adequate rights of recourse, we are well versed in the construction-related legal issues that organisations are likely to encounter.

“Jaspal Gillar heads the construction team and has a wealth of experience in assisting clients in drawing up contracts for major regional projects. He typically acts for owners, lenders and developers.”
