We advise both employers and contractors on all types of construction disputes whether adjudication, expert determination, litigation and national or international arbitration. We understand that most clients would prefer to resolve their construction dispute without resorting to formal dispute resolution and we are well versed in the use of alternative dispute resolution techniques including negotiation, mediation, conciliation, joint expert determination and dispute review boards.
With regard to construction adjudication, we are able to agree a time-based fee or in appropriate circumstances, a fixed-fee for the adjudication. Often the cost of adjudication can be minimised by using the client’s in-house resources and at all times we work with our clients to minimise the cost of adjudication.
We have acted for Employers, Contractors, Subcontractors and Designers on over fifty Construction Adjudications since the coming into force of the Construction Act.
