Construction

We are specialists in construction and building disputes.

Our expertise extends to residential construction projects, which often engage the protections of the Consumer Rights Act 2015. We recognise that many such projects do not complete on time, within budget, or may present with defects. Swift action is necessary to find a solution. Our construction lawyers always focus on cost-effective solutions and provide a free no-obligation initial consultation.

Our expertise also extends to commercial construction projects, including joint-venture agreements, and employer-contractor or contractor-subcontractor disputes. Such disputes often engage the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. We are able to advise on such disputes, including on adjudication, and we provide a free no-obligation initial consultation.

In addition to legal advice, we can assist with alternative dispute resolution (such as negotiation, mediation, and adjudication), and conduct advocacy before the Court.

We can also assist with advisory work such as reviewing contracts.
