Dispute Management & Resolution

Using our many years of combined experience we are equipped to help you avoid, mitigate and resolve disputes in a timely and cost effective manner. We will support you by identifying, analysing, quantifying, and presenting or defending against construction claims that may arise on your project.

Our team of experts have a practical understanding of numerous industry sectors including Building and Construction, Power Transmission and Delivery (PTD), Development and Residential, Civil Engineering, Infrastructure, Highways, Remediation and Largescale Earthworks projects, all of which continue to operate in an adversarial and competitive environment.

Along with the many variants of standard forms of Contract and Subcontracts, such as the NEC 3 and 4 suite of Contracts, JCT, ICE, FIDIC, we also have experience working on project specific and bespoke contracts.

Despite every best intention of the contracting parties and even where risk mitigation measures have been considered and successfully put in place, often due to tight timescales, budgetary constraints, commercial, contractual and personal relationships, or the complexity of a project, risks and disputes will inevitably still arise. Even where parties are known to one another and have a positive history of working together, it is not uncommon for parties to become involved in a contract dispute of some variety.
