With more people building and extending, rather than buying and moving, construction disputes are on the rise.
Our Property Litigation team has vast experience of dealing with construction disputes and can give timely advice as soon as problems first arise to ensure that they are managed effectively, in terms of both time and cost, to avoid any unnecessary disruption of a client’s business.
We will work with you, prioritising first and foremost the need to take a commercial view of the situation, and also work closely and pro-actively to help manage any disputes that arise, either informally or by use of alternative dispute resolution. We will advise you very early on what your rights are, what options are available to you and, in worst-case scenarios, your potential exposure and what can be done by way of damage limitation. We consider litigation to be an option of absolutely last resort, but we will prepare you thoroughly to fight your corner if that course of action becomes necessary.
We regularly advise developers, businesses and individuals on final account disputes, loss and expenses and prolongation claims, contractual and payment disputes, and professional negligence claims. We will work closely with you to manage costs and risk effectively.
