Dispute Assistance and Avoidance

Our team specialises in disputes arising in connection with impaired renewable assets, defective energy and infrastructure facilities as well as complex construction and engineering contracts - including PFI contracts. We also provide fully comprehensive post-contract support services - providing contract interpretation advice, dispute assistance and guidance plus dispute avoidance and resolution services.  

The team has a wealth of experience working closely with clients to find the most effective route of resolving disputes. This includes pre-action negotiations, various forms of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and expert determination, or more formal proceedings such as adjudication, arbitration, and litigation.

  • Loss and expense

The size of our team ensures that all disputes can be resourced efficiently based on their value and complexity. We pride ourselves on getting results for our clients.
