NI: Mills Selig named official legal patron of Construction Employers Federation

Corporate and commercial law firm Mills Selig has become the official legal patron of the Construction Employers Federation (CEF), the sole certified representative body for the construction industry in Northern Ireland.

The patronage offering from Mills Selig will offer CEF’s 800 member companies specialist, full-coverage commercial legal guidance including in relation to matters of construction, corporate, employment, litigation, energy, property and commercial law.

Construction partner Adrian Kerr said: “The global pandemic caused unprecedented disruption for the construction industry. Trends like the rise of teleworking, requirements for social distancing, shifts of resources, breaks in supply chains, and cash flow disruption has resulted in business change at every level.

“Our patronage with CEF has come at a pivotal time for CEF members across Northern Ireland. Our focus as a firm is to navigate our clients through their commercial operations using no-nonsense, straight-forward language focused on practical solutions and advice.

“We are honoured to become a patron of CEF. As a local business ourselves, we look forward to supporting CEF member companies and delivering a holistic legal service.”

Mark Spence, managing director at CEF, said: “Our membership accounts for over 70 per cent of construction output in Northern Ireland. We represent businesses employing a handful of people to some of the largest construction companies in Northern Ireland.

“Queries from our members are varied in terms of complexity, urgency and need. Mills Selig is the perfect fit for taking on the role of legal patron. They have the ability to offer members a truly unique legal service in terms of tailored expert advice that fully encompasses every detail of our member queries.

“We are emerging slowly from the pandemic, and Brexit may still throw up a few more curve balls but knowing that Mills Selig are on hand to provide their expert legal guidance is welcome news for CEF and its members alike.

“We look forward to working with Mills Selig as we guide and support construction companies through the coming weeks, months and years as we adapt to the new ways in which we now operate.”
