Dispute resolution

Dispute resolution; for those occasions when a building contract leads to a dispute between the parties.

Regretfully building contracts sometimes lead to disputes between employers and contractors.

They may disagree over the quality or cost of the work, the extent or scope of the project, the time taken to complete, or even the contract terms themselves. With our knowledge and experience we can advise either party and hopefully secure an amicable settlement; however, if the matter cannot be resolved amicably then we can advise on the alternative dispute resolution procedures including mediation, adjudication, arbitration and litigation.
