Building & Construction Lawyers Melbourne

Our team of building and construction lawyers at Rosendorff are experts in the complexities of building and construction law. 

Our construction lawyers have extensive experience dealing with building matters and as a result, they have also obtained a practical understanding of the issues that face the building industry. This means we can provide you with down-to-earth, well-balanced legal advice.

Our highly-regarded Melbourne-based lawyers work closely with builders, engineers, property developers, architects, surveyors, tradesmen, and home-owners in both domestic and commercial building matters. In terms of front-end construction matters, our lawyers prepare and provide guidance on building contracts, development venture agreements, management and maintenance agreements, and building regulatory compliance issues. When it comes to back-end matters, we act as legal representatives in dispute resolution and fulfil legislative requirements across all Victorian jurisdictions.

Our legal team at Rosendorff Lawyers is outcome driven, always striving to achieve outstanding results for our clients as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. We are proud that we do business differently by providing honest advice to create win-win solutions that secure the future growth of projects and investments.

Commercial & Domestic Building Contracts

Whether you are the builder, the developer, the tradesman, or the home- owner, your construction contract needs to be done right in order to avoid extra costs and disputes later.

Our team of construction and building lawyers are experts in reviewing contracts to ensure that they comply with rules and regulations and don’t contain any discrepancies. Contracts can be complex, so it’s crucial that both sides understand all the terms, rights, and responsibilities before signing. Rest assured that our building contract lawyers will not only clarify the contract details for you but also negotiate if any amendments need to be made.

Commercial & Domestic Building Disputes

A building dispute can happen if legal and contractual obligations have not been met by one of the parties involved. Such disputes can be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. 

Our building dispute lawyers in Melbourne are experienced in dealing with domestic and commercial disputes. They understand that disputes need to be managed quickly in order to minimise cost and disruptions.

If you have found yourself in a dispute, our highly experienced and personable lawyers can help you with legal advice and practical solutions to address and resolve the issues at hand.

I engaged Brett Samuel from Rosendorff Lawyers to help me with a commercial dispute. Brett really went out of his way to understand my dispute and I found him empathetic, thorough and a great advocate. Whilst I had to commence a court proceeding, Brett and his team obtained a really good result for me at mediation so that I would not have to spend significant amounts of money running the case to a trial. I would highly recommend Rosendorff Lawyers to anyone seeking help with their business legal needs and I would be very happy to use Brett and his team again.

My wife and I engaged the services of Rosendorff Lawyers in late 2020 to advise and assist us in a VCAT matter concerning ingress of water from a neighboring apartment through the other owner's balcony.It was a very lengthy process that included taking action against the other apartment owners, the Owners Corporation and ultimately against the builder of the apartments and their Lloyds of London high level Melbourne lawyers.We went through numerous arduous mediation conferences that would have been most stressful if it was not for the skills of the Rosendorff staff members, Brett Samuel and his associate Andrew Black who guided us through the complexities of the VCAT procedures.There was a lot of pressure by the opposing parties to not continue with our action, but Brett counselled us to move forward with it and ultimately, we had our day at VCAT in June 2022 with a resounding win for our side.Rosendorff Lawyers protect the interests of the minor parties against the weight of the major legal players and are to be commended for what they achieve.My wife and I are both in our early 80's. We could have ended up badly out of pocket with expenses etc., but Brett and Andrew successfully guided us all the way through the trauma for which we are extremely grateful to them both.I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rosendorff's to any person or organization looking for professional legal advice but with a need for a sympathetic lawyer.Sincerely,MELVYN MICHAEL

Our Happy Clients

The Difference Is In Our Level Of Experience Defending The Most Difficult Cases & Our Rigorous Approach To Each Matter

  • I have known Brett Samuel and Rosendorff Lawyers for over 18 months. Brett is a commercially astute lawyer who provides excellent service, quick turnaround, responsive and useful advice and above all understands that clients expect results not just legal gobbledygook.

    I have referred Brett to a number of clients requiring commercial legal expertise and each has commented on his service and value for money approach to the law.

    I have also personally engaged Brett on a number of commercial and private matters and have found him to be an excellent ally. His advice is highlighted by providing options to the client but importantly, recommending a course of action that minimises risk and maximises outcomes. To date this approach has proven to be very valuable and what I, as a client, expects.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Brett for any commercial matter that you need advice on.

  • I have used the services of Rosendorff Lawyers for a number of years now and have found them to be a great asset to my Business Sunburst Group. Their advice concerning contractual law and from time to time commercial litigation has been indispensable. Brett Samuel is always a pleasure to deal with as he is meticulous in his research prior to any legal action we might be considering. My association with Rosendorff Lawyers has helped my business to make the correct informeddecisions and in doing so has enabled me to save many thousands of dollars that otherwise uniformed decisions may have cost me.


  • Thanks for the excellent work you and your team at Rosendorff Lawyers did throughout the whole process of setting up Tarp Asset Management. The advice given was much appreciated. Coming in under budget was a welcome surprise too. I would not hesitate to recommend Rosendorff Lawyers to anyone searching for a reputable Melbourne-based financial services law firm. Your team went well above and beyond what was required to achieve success. I look forward to a long and rewarding professional relationship with Rosendorff Lawyers.
