Claims and Dispute Resolution
We are dedicated to providing effective solutions to construction disputes and enabling our clients to avoid conflict where possible and to manage and resolve it when necessary.
Most construction and PFI contracts now contain dispute resolution provisions based on adjudication. For many contracts these provisions arise out of statute law. In other contracts the parties have opted for adjudication to provide for a quick method of dispute resolution. We adopt a commercially sensible approach at all times.
