Litigation

If you have an urgent  problem relating to construction and engineering litigation about which you need advice please call us now on 01773 712116. 

At Streetwise we are always looking to solve your problems as a Specialist Sub-Contractor and if you are contemplating litigation then we can help.

Civil litigation is a process for resolving public and private legal disputes on civil matters through negotiation or through the courts. In 1999, new rules (the Civil Procedure Rules) were introduced in order to improve access to justice. These are also known as the Woolf Reforms because they were developed by Lord Woolf.

As a Specialist sub-Contractor one of the key things you might need to know about is            The Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes. This Pre-Action Protocol applies to all construction and engineering disputes (including professional negligence claims against architects, engineers and quantity surveyors). You can see the The Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes by clicking the link .

If you simply haven't got time to look or have any  legal problem whatsoever, then why not use the Ask Streetwise or Streetwise Confidential feature on this site to ask our virtual team of experts for help?

The most recent reforms were considered in Lord Justice Jackson's Final Report on civil litigation costs was published in January 2010.  Since its publication there has been a huge amount of debate on his recommendations, especially on the key planks of his reforms which propose a radical overhaul of the current “no win / no fee” regime.

What are the key points arising out of the Final Report?  Please click here to view a document produced by leading law firm Cameron McKenna as a summary of the important recommendations made.  The major recommendations affect personal injuries litigation, and similar types of case, where “no win / no fee” agreements are common.  There are, however, other important recommendations that would impact on commercial litigation.

What is likely to happen with Lord Justice Jackson’s recommendations?  The government has said that it is giving detailed consideration to Lord Justice Jackson’s report, without giving much away on what it is likely to do. 

As you can no doubt appreciate everything we do both in our working lives and our private lives is subject to the law. It's no surprise therefore that at some point you are going to bump into some sort of legal problem and you might decide to resolve this by way of litigation.

However, litigation is by no means the only way of resolving problems and you will be pleased to know that you can find a wealth of information on Streetwisesubbie.com about avoiding problems.
