Construction and Engineering Disputes

Disputes

Despite the best of intentions sometimes a dispute on a construction and engineering project is simply unavoidable. We understand how worrying it can be when you are facing a dispute.

What we do

We leave no stone unturned and quickly get to the root of the dispute. From the outset, we establish your real objectives, the strengths of your case, your prospects of success and seek to minimise costs and disruption to your business.

When time is of the essence, we can provide a 'client hot-line' service giving you immediate access to legal advice on your dispute from someone who is familiar with the background of your project.

What we are known for

We vigorously protect your interests in connection with a full range of construction and engineering disputes whether you are a contractor, sub-contractor, developer, public and private sector property owner/operator, consultant or insurer of construction, engineering and professional risks.

Typically the issues we are involved in include claims for delay and disruption, extensions of time, loss and expense and the cost of remedying defects. We also deal with disputes arising out of claims in relation to performance bonds, collateral warranties, design and build obligations and all areas of dispute arising from PFI contracts.

Remarkable client care
