There are several construction dispute resolution methods that can be used depending on the particulars of your case. Our expert team are experienced in all manner of construction dispute resolution techniques and can advise you on the best way of putting your case, and getting it resolved.

You don’t have to “go legal” as many people put it. In over 90% of cases we can get your construction dispute resolved by putting your case professionally and purposefully and negotiating a favourable outcome.

Negotiating Engineering & Construction Disputes

Putting your case forward and then negotiating professionally is often the simplest method of getting your construction dispute resolved. However, our experience tells us that Specialist Contractors, Trade Contractors and Subcontractors benefit enormously from our expert assistance.

As a party to a construction dispute you can try to negotiate a settlement at any time, whether or not it is provided for in any contract between you and the other party.

Negotiation can be informal: by email, telephone or face-to-face, but it can also be undertaken in a more formal way.

Negotiation can take place at any stage of the dispute, and be as quick as the parties want.

Typically, negotiation is private and confidential and in situations where English law applies, the negotiations are subject to the ‘without prejudice’ doctrine. The parties retain control of the outcome as they decide whether the proposed terms are acceptable, and give instructions and approve any agreement reached.

Mediation Services For Engineering & Construction Dispute Resolution

Our mediation services provide you with an alternative construction dispute resolution procedure, instigated by us on your behalf, to achieve settlement of your case without invoking formal legal proceedings.

Where dispute mediation is an option we can prepare your case, attend any meeting and pursue a resolution of your dispute, using forceful presentation and convincing argument.

Statutory Adjudication For Construction Disputes

The majority of construction disputes can now be resolved by statutory adjudication.

With the right advice, adjudication is a fast and cost effective method of dispute resolution, and is particularly suitable for resolving payment problems for Specialist contractors, Trade Contractors and Subcontractors.

The entire adjudication process from referral to decision can be completed in under 42 days, unless an extension is mutually agreed between yourself and the party that you are adjudicating against.

Adjudication is a legal process whereby your case is prepared and submitted to an adjudicator who will then decide on the outcome.

If you wish to refer a case to adjudication you must prepare properly and thoroughly in order to create a winnable case. Remember this is a legal process and there is a certain amount of legal formality to be followed, and a few pitfalls to watch out for.

We can advise you about the likely outcome of an adjudication, and provide support in preparing your case, and representing you at all stages of the process, to ensure you have the best possible prospect for success.

Arbitration For Construction Disputes

It may be that you are obliged by the terms of the contract for your dispute to be referred to arbitration.

We can still help and advise you and if necessary we will assist you with the appointment of a suitably experienced solicitor to deal with the care and conduct of the arbitration proceedings or we will work with your existing legal team.

Litigation Support In Construction Disputes

If negotiations have failed it may become necessary for your construction dispute to be dealt with by litigation.

Once again we can still help and advise you and if necessary we will assist you with the appointment of a suitably experienced solicitor to deal with the litigation or we will work with your existing legal team.

And exactly like arbitration our team of Consultants can also provide independent expert evidence whenever this is required.
