Construction litigation

We advise employers, contractors and consultants on disputes arising from construction projects, including:

  • Defects and poor workmanship.
  • Claims for additional cost or extensions of time.
  • Claims for damages arising from delays.
  • Over-certification of project costs.
  • Negligent design.
  • Enforcing adjudicator’s decisions.

We are experienced in all forms of construction litigation, including proceedings in the Technology and Construction Court and adjudications under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, as well as more informal methods such as mediations, conciliations and joint expert determinations.
