Construction - Dispute Resolution

In Construction, disputes are often a difference in perception of the same problem.

We know that cash flow is the lifeblood of the industry. We have the specialist skills and expertise to protect your interests in the supply chain and to ensure your profits keep flowing.

The law surrounding construction is complex. Disputes can be an inevitable consequence and they can be costly and stressful experiences, impacting on profit and productivity. Often entering into a dispute resolution process (whether adjudication, arbitration, mediation, expert determination or litigation) can be the only option to vindicate your rights, protect cash flow or secure liquidity.

We will work with you to manage the costs involved in resolving your dispute. We will explore options with you and develop strategies to suit your needs, keeping you informed as the process develops.

We have unrivalled expertise in Construction Dispute Resolution, particularly for SME’s, specialist sub-contractors and niche developers. We also represent domestic clients, who wish to develop their existing property, or to self-build their own bespoke home.
