Real Estate | Construction Disputes
We deal with all aspects of construction law from project commencement through to completion. We provide a full-life service for all of our clients and are there to support throughout the process. In a rapidly evolving area of the law, it is vital for those involved in, or associated with, the construction industry to have access to a team with first-rate knowledge and a real expertise in construction law.
Headed by a partner specialising in construction law (both contentious and non-contentious), we are known for delivering practical solutions to disputes that arise during the lifetime of a contract. Where such a practical resolution to a dispute cannot be found, our team has significant experience and expertise in dealing with adjudications of all sizes and proceedings before the Technology and Construction Court.
Existing clients include house builders, architects, contractors and suppliers of products to the construction industry who range in size from owner-managed businesses to listed PLCs. Through working closely with these clients for many years we have gained an insight into the many different conflicts that firms face, alongside possible routes to solutions. We are well known in this area for obtaining excellent results on challenging cases for our clients.
We are aware that litigation will often be the last resort and is not appropriate for every situation. In such circumstances, we will endeavour to obtain the right result through negotiation and mediation, areas in which we are similarly experienced. When litigation is required, however, you can rely on our nationally recognised specialist team, which is are renowned for its recent successes in this area, to work on your behalf.
As part of a larger team of property and construction specialists, we can draw on the expertise of lawyers in land acquisition, planning, property and debt recovery to ensure we have access to the right information to obtain the best result for your case.
We are closely involved with the local and national property market as members of the House Builders Federation, British Property Federation and co-sponsors of the Guildford Property Club.
