Contractual Disputes & Troubleshooting

Sometimes local authorities and registered providers bring us in at a stage when their schemes are not going according to plan.

For example, despite signed and agreed contracts, a builder might ask for a significant uplift on costs.  

Other disputes can arise from ambiguous wording in the contract, quality of workmanship, the causes of and justifications for delays – in fact disputes can arise during any part of the construction process.  

This service can include:

  • Ascertain areas of the process that require scrutiny
  • Undertake extensive research with all parties 
  • Review the relevant processes 
  • Define the future approach to risk identification, management and mitigation
