King & Spalding was one of the first full-service law firms in the world to establish a practice devoted to construction law. Today, King & Spalding has one of the largest transactional construction and procurement practices in the world, with deep experience and expertise in representing owners, developers and lenders in drafting and negotiating construction-related agreements for their global projects.
King & Spalding’s construction practice is unique in the industry, and consists of lawyers with hands-on construction industry experience. Many of the team’s lawyers are former engineers, who are comfortable “rolling up their sleeves” and working with the owner’s engineers, architects and consultants to coordinate the terms and conditions with the technical exhibits and to help prevent common pitfalls that occur in technical documentation.

Our construction transactional team has represented primarily owners, developers and lenders. Our lawyers have drafted and negotiated thousands of construction-related agreements for major projects in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, the CIS, Africa and Asia ranging from as little as US$10 million to over US$40 billion in value, including:
