Construction & Building Claims 

 

  • The work has not been completed on time.
  • I have been overcharged for the work undertaken.
  • What happens if there wasn't a written contract.
  • I would like to get my money back.
  • Remedial works are required.

We advise and represent in legal proceedings UK and international clients in building and construction disputes in England & Wales including regional UK courts and in non-litigation dispute resolution systems - arbitration, adjudication, mediation. We act for companies, firms and developers of all sizes, including: commercial builders; residential builders; main contractors; sub-contractors; employers; developers; architects; and surveyors.

We understand that, irrespective of the amount of money involved, building disputes can rapidly become management-time-consuming and expensive.

We find that alternative dispute resolution often proves a cost-effective and efficient means of resolving disputes without the need to commence court proceedings. In view of this we seek to open lines of communication between the parties at an early stage and to explore the possibility of attempting to resolve the dispute by way of alternative dispute resolution including:

  • round-table meetings between the parties;
  • mediation;
  • arbitration;
  • adjudication
  • preparation and exchange of experts
  • reports;
  • meetings of experts.

If early dispute-resolution does not prove possible our lawyers know how to be effective, tenacious litigators. We have wide experience of representing clients in arbitrations and in litigation in the County Courts, High Court, Technology and Construction Court and Mercantile Court.
