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.
When full scale arbitration is unavoidable we will staff the matter with an experienced partner-led team who will deal with the matter in the most cost-effective manner and will strive to achieve the most commercially advantageous solutions for our client.
Some examples of our work include:
- Acted for an oil producer in an LCIA arbitration concerning a dispute under a drilling services contract in a former Soviet Republic.
- Acted for a civil works subcontractor on an ICC arbitration concerning a dispute arising out of the construction of a fertilizer plant in Qatar.
- Acted for a consortium of dredging contractors in their disputes against the Army Corps of Engineer on the deepening of the New York City container terminal.
