Groups / Legal & Commercial


The group examines legal, commercial, liability, risk and insurance issues that our members face. They also help ACE to shape our support to members in these areas.

Unlike other ACE groups, membership is also mixed with other organisations that have an interest in the topics of discussion including specialist legal firms. This ensures their invaluable insight and expertise can inform discussions from the outset and helps the group to pre-empt and proactively address legal and risk issues of concern to the entire industry.

Alongside this activity the group monitors issues around professional indemnity insurance, legal and contractual developments and produces in-depth expert guidance for our members to deal with these issues.

Much of this output can be found in the Resource Hub on our website.

The group meets quarterly. Members include representatives of the following ACE member companies and affiliates: AECOM, Beale & Co, BWBConsulting, BuroHappold, Brunel Professions, GHD Livigunn, Hurst Peirce & Malcolm LLP, Max Fordham, MW Barber Associates, MLM Consulting, Mott MacDonald, Ramboll, and Royal Haskoning DHV.

The Chair is Henry Pipe of Max Fordham.
