Construction disputes

Comprehensive service for resolving commercial and residential construction disputes

Due to the large sums and tight profit margins involved, disputes involving the design, payment and/or warranty of construction projects are common.

Our specialists possess exceptional understanding and experience in this complex area of law. We provide cost-effective solutions to employers, contractors, sub-contractors and developers in numerous adjudications, and can represent you in trials at the specialist division of the high court.

We can also represent you if you are a residential property owner who has suffered loss and damage because of defective building works, or if you are making a claim of professional negligence against a construction professional.

Our experienced construction lawyers fully understand the need to deal with construction disputes in a cost-effective manner. We will work closely with you to collate and analyse all the available information and reach a reasoned view on the best course of action. There are a range of alternative options that we can advise you on to resolve disputes without necessarily going to court, such as mediation.

However, if an amicable agreement cannot be reached, then we have expertise in seeking appropriate redress through adjudication or the courts.

Our wide-ranging construction services include:

  • Disputes arising out of construction contracts (including JCT contracts)
  • Payment disputes
  • Disputes relating to interim and final accounts (including claims for variations, extensions of time and loss and expense)
  • Payment and payless notices disputes
  • Claims brought under the Defective Premises Act
  • Delay claims
  • Disputes relating to defective works and remedial works
  • All aspects of disputes relating to residential construction
  • All aspects of construction adjudication
  • Expertise in high value disputes brought in the specialist technology and construction court

If you are making or defending a claim, contact a member of our specialist construction team in St Albans, Harpenden or Luton for expert advice.
