The construction industry is fundamentally different to most other industries. Projects which are undertaken are generally “one-offs” and require seamless teamwork between people of different disciplines, with varying ideals, qualifications and expectations.
It is often the case that the individual stakeholders have never worked with each other before. There are always different motivations on the part of those involved: the contractors want to maximise profit and the employer wants to maximise value. If a contract is not sufficiently clear, each party may interpret their rights and obligations differently.
Conflict over cost, time and quality can prove highly emotive, financially damaging and can tarnish your business reputation.
Our solicitors have significant experience in all aspects of construction, particularly in disputes. We regularly act for clients in adjudication, arbitration , court litigation and mediation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and are often prepared to act on a no win, no fee basis.
