Construction & Engineering Disputes

The Construction & Engineering Disputes Team has in depth experience of complex High Court construction and engineering disputes, as well as arbitrations and adjudications. The Team also has extensive experience in complex related professional negligence and contractual disputes in the construction and engineering sectors.

We have been instructed in a number of high profile court cases, arbitrations and adjudications. Many of our cases involve multi-party disputes relating to the negligence of construction and engineering professionals. Adjudications are part of our everyday diet and we are frequently in the High Court in relation to contested enforcement of adjudication awards.

The Team offers lawyers who have been trained to operate in both the contentious and non-contentious sectors. This means that we can offer our clients a detailed and practical understanding of how the contracts are negotiated and operated. We focus on the key issues allowing our clients to achieve their objectives efficiently. It also means that our clients benefit from the same legal team providing advice from cradle to grave on any project.

The Team has a long established reputation for offering clients technical yet practical advice, taking into account the commercial realities under which our clients operate.

Our client base takes in all aspects of the industry. We advise both public and private sector clients in areas from energy, leisure, retail, commercial, industrial and international projects. Our clients include listed companies, local authorities and educational institutions, banks, developers, contractors, specialist sub-contractors and consultants.
