Construction Disputes

The lawyers in our Construction Disputes team are highly experienced in acting for a wide range of clients including employers, contractors, sub-contractors, developers, local authorities, banks, professionals, consultants, and private individuals.

Our dedicated team has a wealth of experience and we work closely with our clients to find the most effective route of resolving disputes, whether that be in pre-action negotiations in accordance with the Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes, any forms of alternative dispute resolution including mediation and expert determination or through more formal proceedings such as adjudication, arbitration, and litigation. Our lawyers are skilled in acting for both Claimants and Defendants in all manner of proceedings including Court proceedings in the Technology and Construction Court and Court of Appeal. In addition, members of our team also have experience in advising on complex disputes arising in respect of Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Public Private Partnerships (PPP) Contracts.

We have experience in a range of sectors including infrastructure, retail, renewable energy, energy from waste, and local government. We advise in relation to all aspects of construction disputes including professional negligence claims, payment disputes, breach of contract claims, defective design, terminations, contractor insolvency, adjudication enforcement proceedings, interim / final account disputes, delay including acceleration, extensions of time and loss and expense. The size of our team ensures that all disputes can be resourced efficiently based on their value and complexity and we pride ourselves on getting results for our clients.

We are versatile and able to provide you with technically sound and well-rounded advice to suit your needs, whether that be a light touch approach or a more robust and vigorous approach when required. We can also provide you with the appropriate level of support to suit your needs, from advising on a discrete issue or aspect of a potential dispute  to taking a more direct and hands-on approach in leading on formal dispute resolution processes. We are results focused and provide tailored, flexible, and practical solutions to achieve the desired outcome.
