Providing pragmatic advice,
focusing on the issues that matter.

construction disputes

Construction projects can be complex and the reality is that disputes often arise. We will work with you to ensure that you understand your rights and obligations under the contract – analysing and assessing the evidence, in order to provide pragmatic advice on how best to pursue or defend a claim. Where appropriate, we will advise on how to manage issues, so we can put you in the best position possible – taking the approach that dispute avoidance is often the best route. But where a dispute is unavoidable or inevitable, we are experienced in engaging in correspondence to advance your position.

We can also represent you in adjudication, arbitration or court proceedings – whilst being mindful of pragmatic solutions and cost effective alternative methods of resolving disputes. We understand that this is often important where clients wish to preserve ongoing commercial relationships, and it can also save costs.
