We have extensive experience in advising in relation to all aspects of contracting and its related forms. A number of our legal team have worked for contractors, sub-contractors and procurers/employers and have been seconded to clients’ legal departments to offer specific assistance and expertise on construction cases. In addition to providing all aspects of advisory work, we also provide construction dispute services. We advise claimants and respondents in all aspects of adjudicationarbitration and litigation. In many cases it is preferable for our clients to settle their cases on acceptable terms rather than to litigate and we also have a wealth of experience in alternative dispute resolution, for example mediation.
