Global Construction & Infrastructure Legal Alliance

Watt Tieder is a founding member of The Global Construction & Infrastructure Legal Alliance (GcilA), which was founded in recognition of the need to provide the construction industry and the public and private authorities with expert legal advice in the fields of construction, infrastructure and mining law in major markets worldwide.

Headquartered in Paris, France, GcilA is a unique alliance, combining the expertise, skills, and knowledge of several specialized law firms in order to provide clients with innovative and timely solutions to complex issues and projects. The constituent members are leading practitioners from their respective jurisdictions.

In addition to providing legal representation, GcilA offers public seminars and in-house training programs, and is in the process of developing a web accessible knowledge center which will maintain a repository of contract forms, briefs, articles, monographs, and other writings on construction, infrastructure and mining law.

This team, along with our affiliation with the European law firm of HFK Rechtsanwälte, based in Munich, Germany, with additional offices in Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Hanover and Vienna, means that we have resources close to project sites all over the world.
