Construction and Engineering

Contractor, developer, employer, engineer, supplier, government body, project manager, or consultant — whichever part of the project you handle, you expose yourself to the risk of a dispute. As your project develops, so does the potential for the unexpected, even with the best laid plans.

Whether you come up against issues around who’s responsible if specifications are revised or who picks up the tab if there are unforeseen delays or defects, we help you avoid them escalating. And because global projects cross jurisdictions, you can rely on us to work alongside your teams anywhere in the world, even on site if you want.

We combine legal know-how with an understanding of the technicalities of what you do. This gives us insights into why problems crop up on projects and how to preempt and deal with the other side. Or how to react to the steps they might take if you are caught off guard.

We draw on Prism, our early case assessment software, to examine the main aspects of your dispute in light of case law and legislation. Off the back of this, we share with you best and worst-case scenarios if you were to arbitrate or litigate. And we give you detailed advice to help you decide your next steps, including strategies to avoid the dispute.

It’s a much more cost-effective way to resolve disputes — and all within 30 days.
