Dispute Resolution

Whether you are a building client faced with a major claim on your project, or a main contractor or sub-contractor needing to make a case for the payment of loss and expense it is important that you receive honest, robust and effective advice as early as possible.

Unless dealt with early such matters can easily develop into a dispute where parties become polarised and their views entrenched.

Clarity of argument is a trademark of ours. This leads to an easier and more successful resolution of the problem.

Our experience of claims and disputes includes working for companies from most sectors of the construction and engineering industries.

We have been engaged to prepare the following:

  • Prolongation claims
  • Loss and expense claims
  • Defective workmanship / rectification claims
  • Claims defence
  • Pleadings for arbitration

In addition to the above, we are able to advise you on alternative methods of dispute resolution including:

  • Mediation
  • Adjudication
  • Conciliation
