Construction projects are often complex, expensive and can involve a number of different parties. Where disputes arise during a project, these are likely to have a substantial effect on costs and deliverability. As far as possible, parties should anticipate and provide for disagreements as part of a construction contract. However, this is not always possible.
Our Dispute Resolution Team has experience in assisting in lower value construction claims, where the value is anywhere between £50-250,000
“We offer our clients great value with their straightforward construction disputes, because we are able to give them larger-firm expertise but at much more competitive rates.”
