Construction and engineering

Unfortunately disputes occur in all businesses. When they do we can provide you with clear advice on where you stand and what remedies are available to you

We specialise in working along side clients on projects where our clients are experiencing a problem. Through early involvement we address those problems to find workable and commercial solutions.

Our clients encompass the full range of those involved in the construction industry both within the UK and internationally including many household name contractors and commercial developers as well as various local authorities, affordable housing providers and governmental bodies in the UK. We believe that our international pedigree, with long established offices in the Middle East, is unrivalled.

We have provided guidance to develop risk management and dispute avoidance strategies so that our clients can retain control of their projects. Should further action become necessary we regularly advise on identifying the most appropriate means of guiding our clients to a satisfactory outcome whether that be by adjudication, mediation, conciliation, early neutral evaluation, expert determination or a more bespoke and tailored process for a specific problem. We never underestimate the value of early discussions to avoid resolve or reduce the dispute.

We are an integral part of the Projects and Construction Group providing a full service for any construction or construction related projects. We have specialist partners and assistants in the London, Manchester, Exeter and Middle East offices of the firm including a qualified Quantity Surveyor, Arbitrator and Adjudicator.
