Construction Disputes

Construction disputes are often complex, involving significant investment, numerous parties and tight project-completion deadlines.  

The sector is renowned for its potential to unleash the unexpected – whichever part of the project you manage.

Whether it’s deciding who’s responsible for re-specifications, or dealing with unmet payment terms, unforeseen defects or insolvency issues, we apply profound industry knowledge and experience to help you find the most practical and favourable solution.
