Arthur Cox

Niav heads up the Construction & Engineering team in Arthur Cox, and, having specialised in construction for almost 25 years, has extensive experience of advising on the range of issues arising on construction projects, including drafting and negotiating construction contracts and design appointments, together with all ancillary documentation. Her experience extends to advising on all key standard forms, both Irish and international, including the GCCC suite of contracts and international forms such as FIDIC, JCT and NEC. Her familiarity with the imperatives driving contracting authorities and semi-state bodies, as well as developers, contractors and funders, enables her to provide pragmatic and tailored advice, with a focus on ensuring that key risks are appropriately managed through the construction documentation. She also advises on efficient contract administration and the management of issues arising during the construction process, as well as providing timely and solution driven advice on dispute resolution.
