We Specialise in Building and Construction Law 

Our Principal, Peter Merity, is an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation Law with a sub specialty in Building and Construction Law and has many years of experience in the field of building and construction law, both home building law and commercial building law.

Peter has a Masters Degree in Building and Construction Law from the University of Melbourne. 

This firm has provided consistent service to the building and construction industry in both commercial and domestic areas. 

Home Building Contracts are probably the largest contracts, in money terms, that ordinary people will ever enter in to in their lives. They are also among the most uncertain and riskiest of contracts in that the thing you are buying does not exist in a finished form at the time of contracting. Allow us to advise and help you with the contracting process so that things go smoothly as possible. You need to know about the pitfalls if you are going to be able to avoid them.  

Currently there are issues in the media regarding high rise buildings in New South Wales .  We can assist strata managers and owners corporations with their claims for defective works.

Whether you are the main contractor, or the principal of, a major construction project you need to have a clear idea as to what you want the project to provide. 

We can assist you with making a claim for unpaid monies (Payment Claim/Adjudication application) or defending a claim (Payment Schedule/Adjudication Response).
