Construction Disputes

We act for clients across a wide spectrum of construction disputes ranging from defending local businesses against difficult consumers to bringing multi-million pound claims on behalf of national and international companies. These disputes have included contract disputes (including disputes subject to standard contracts such as JCT, NEC, MF/1 etc) and disputes where we have represented sub-contractors, contractors and employers in relation to high profile and prestigious civil projects. Our broad array of cases enables us to see the dispute from both sides of the fence. This experience means we can often defuse a potentially costly dispute allowing everyone to agree a speedy resolution and continue with their commercial relationships.

Whether you are involved in procuring or delivering design, construction or operations, we can advise on all stages and any aspect of the process from inception through to completion and beyond to reduce and solve problems.

We will advise on the use of standard, modified and bespoke contracts for specific projects and the best way to minimise risk for you under those contracts documents. We can help agree contracts and sub-contracts and negotiate loss claims. Whenever defects or claims occur, we will quickly provide a comprehensive, practical and cost effective response which could include negotiation, Alternative Dispute Resolution (including mediation), adjudication, arbitration, conciliation or litigation.
