We act in mediation, arbitration, adjudication and litigation for a wide range of clients throughout London, the south and west, providing expertise and a practical approach to resolving Building & Construction disputes from Cornwall to Kent.
Our clients range from homeowners, property developers and industry professionals including architects, surveyors and planners, to businesses and individuals in the construction industry working either main contractors or as sub-contractors or employers.
The breadth of issues arising in Building & Construction is enormous and they are rarely limited to a single point of law so our team combines sector specialism with expertise in related areas including proprietary law, commercial law, professional negligence and estates.
We recognise that no two engagements are the same and that in such a complex industry there is no such thing as an off-the-shelf solution. Instead, our approach is to explore the unique circumstances in which your issue has developed and to understand your goals in engaging legal representation. We also recognise the need for proportionality, commercial viability, cost efficiency and urgency. Our barristers are acutely aware of the cost impact of the cessation of working pending agreement for all parties and will work hard to achieve a speedy resolution and a return to progress on site. Wherever appropriate, we are happy to put on our wellies and hard hats to attend on site and are also able to conduct alternative dispute resolution on site should this be desirable.
Our Building & Construction barristers are experts in crisis and time management and, where appropriate, thinking laterally to develop practical solutions to issues such as:
Many of our barristers also act as mediators and all our barristers act in all aspects of alternative dispute resolution and are happy to discuss fixed prices for lower value disputes, proportionate, conditional fee agreements, damage-based agreements and competitive prices for all disputes and fees generally.
