This article presents information on Fenwick Elliot. The construction boutique, which moved into new premises on Aldwych just before Christmas, believes it is in the happy position of being the largest specialist construction law firm in Great Britain, following construction heavyweight Masons' merger last year with Pinsents. The office move is a physical sign of the firm's permeating confidence. Although the firm handles both contentious and non-contentious work, the booming area that Tolson and his partners have identified is international arbitration, in particular relating to oil and gas and construction projects. The firm bas been involved in disputes as far afield as Turkey, Pakistan and Sudan.
