Welcome to clarity

Construction disputes

The construction industry is famous for its disputes.  We offer expertise in all areas of construction dispute management and avoidance.

Our team pursue and defend claims involving all participants in the construction process and at all stages. We can offer advice as soon as issues first arise and if required can advise on all types of formal dispute resolution including adjudication, arbitration, court proceedings and mediation.

Clear advice

We resolve disputes for our clients in the most practical, appropriate and cost effective way.  All available remedies, including self-help, are considered. The  aim of the team is always to ensure  that clients understand and are actively involved in the process at each stage.

More about our service

With a client base including employers, contractors, consultants  and public sector we can provide advice either throughout the design period, the build or at conclusion.  We advise on claims related to valuations and payment, extensions of time, enforceability of bonds, defective works, professional negligence and the ragbag of unusual and potentially time consuming issues which often arise in many  construction projects. We aim to add value through prompt, clear advice with drafting and advocacy tailored to the individual needs of our clients.

Our approach to fees

We understand the importance of providing fee clarity and value for money. At each stage of an instruction we aim to scope to work to be undertaken and to give the best estimate possible of the costs likely to be incurred. Budgets are kept under regular review.   Fixed fee arrangements may be possible in certain circumstances.
