About us


CSSI consists of a dynamic team of specialist construction law practitioners. The team provides consulting services focused on the various legal and related aspects of the construction and engineering industry, both to Employers and Contractors.


CSSI’s MEA office, which serves the Middle East and Africa, is based in Johannesburg, South Africa. It’s European office is based in France, serving the international market. Our international team expertly provides services across the globe, delivering our services wherever our clients may require.


We pride ourselves on providing independent and impartial advice and guidance on all aspects of construction and engineering projects; from the proposal stage, through execution, until final completion, and thereafter where necessary.


Our approach is always that a well-drafted contract is the first step to a successful project and is critical in avoiding disputes from occurring.


Whichever direction a project takes you, we are your partner every step of the way.


We operate by becoming a part of our customers’ teams. With this approach, we add our expertise to the strength of knowledge and experience already there. We keep our team small, to ensure that we always provide focus, clarity and cohesion.


When additional resources are required, we provide the necessary skills through our affiliation with both local and international legal and consulting firms, all of whom are recognised as experts in their respective fields.


Our aim is always to reduce costs. This is achieved by assimilating ourselves with the teams established by our clients and alliance partners, thereby reducing duplication of work and resources.


With CSSI’s involvement from an early stage, we are able to guide your team on the best way to plan, prepare and implement your project, your contract and all associated legal aspects.
