Disputes

Disputes are core to our construction, engineering and infrastructure practice and our specialist lawyers advise on all aspects of the dispute resolution process from crystallisation of a dispute, prior to any formal proceedings, until resolution.

Our experience extends from domestic litigation to international arbitration as well as DAB/DRB proceedings, adjudication, expert determination and mediation.

Our experience and specialist knowledge means we have a clear understanding of the issues involved in, and the best strategy for taking forward, claims concerning delay, extensions of time, loss and/or expense (including prolongation and disruption costs), variations, suspension and termination, defective design, payment and professional negligence. We also advise in relation to property damage claims (including pursuing subrogated recovery on behalf of insurers), together with claims relating to CAR/EAR and project-specific insurance policies.

Our lawyers are integral members of the communities in which they practise so they are well-placed to advise our clients in the context of relevant market atmospheres. Our strong understanding of international jurisdictions enables us to successfully resolve disputes and contribute to our clients’ success in the UK, Ireland, Middle East, Africa, Europe, Central and South East Asia, Australasia and the Americas.
