Construction disputes

Our Construction Disputes team specialise in helping clients anticipate and prevent construction and engineering disputes.

We work closely with clients to solve problems quickly, cost-effectively, without legal jargon and where possible without resorting to formal litigation or arbitration. This may involve adjudication, mediation, early neutral evaluation or expert determination. However, where required, the Construction Disputes team is also highly experienced in resolving disputes through court proceedings including Technology and Construction Court litigation. Team members also have experience in enforcing adjudication decisions in the High Court.

A regular seminar programme provides clients and referrers with information on a range of construction topics, useful updates on current issues as well as an opportunity to network. The Construction Disputes team assists with a wide range of disputes including:

  • Claims for defective works
  • Extensions of time
  • Claims arising from contract termination
  • Loss and expense claims
  • Disputes arising under standard forms such as JCT contracts
  • Professional negligence claims involving construction professionals
  • Final account disputes
