Building & Construction Disputes

Building and construction disputes are unique in their technical complexity and time sensitivity, particularly in the project implementation phase. Whether your interests are as developer or as construction professional, our team has the technical know-how and experience to help you identify, manage and minimise your risk through the life of the project.

To achieve that our dispute resolution team works seamlessly with our front end property team for an end-to-end service that is best positioned to help steer you through the ever-changing building and construction landscape, from project inception right through to completion.

We advise our clients on appropriate, timely strategies to address and respond to tender disputes, defects claims and assessment, delay and overrun claims, security of payment legislation, wrongful termination, professional negligence and building insurance claims arising from commercial, domestic and mixed-use developments.

When a dispute is unavoidable we employ the entire range of non-litigious and litigious solutions to protect your commercial interests including expert referral and determination, adjudication, conciliation, judicial review or litigation through the Court and Tribunal specialist building and lists.
