Building and Construction

Our barristers pursue and defend claims in relation to building and construction work. We have substantial experience in advising, strategy planning and conducting litigation. Issues our clients raise upon which we advise include:

  • Remedial works required?
  • Work not been completed on time?
  • Overcharged for the work undertaken?
  • What happens if there wasn't a written contract?
  • Can I get my money back?
  • Can I get insurance?

We advise and represent in legal proceedings in the United Kingdom and international clients in building and construction disputes in London and regional UK courts and in non-litigation dispute resolution systems - arbitration, adjudication, mediation. We act for companies, firms and developers of all sizes, including: commercial builders; residential builders; main contractors; sub-contractors; employers; developers; architects; and surveyors.

We understand that, irrespective of the amount of money involved, building disputes can rapidly become management-time-consuming and expensive.  We have a dedicated mediation team with expertise in building and construction disputes.
