Is your craftsmanship in question, or have you suffered as a consequence of defective work?
Has the work contracted for not been carried out to time or price?
We handle a wide variety of disputes and claims in the area of construction law, ranging from large commercial disputes valued in terms of millions of pounds to small disputes on behalf of individuals.
Our work in this area includes taking litigation disputes through the court system, as well as undertaking adjudications and arbitrations in accordance with relevant clauses in building contracts. We also seek to resolve disputes by mediation wherever possible.
The disputes we deal with include claims for loss and expense as well as other types of claim arising from construction contracts. We have advised on a wide range of issues arising from the interpretation of building contracts, unlawful termination of the contract itself, disputed variations claims as well as “quantum meruit” claims.
We endeavour to handle each dispute by a careful analysis of the matters in dispute so that we can reach an early assessment of the likely merits of both claim and counterclaim. We seek to apply a ‘hands on’ approach and understand the commercial reality of each individual dispute.
We work closely with surveyors, quantity surveyors and other appropriate professionals who are able to act as experts in each case. We maintain close relationships with specialist construction law barristers from Chambers in London such as Atkins Chambers and Keating Chambers and can call on them when their involvement is required.
