Building projects can be highly profitable, but when they go wrong proving who is responsible for the mess and what compensation should be paid can be complicated, time consuming and expensive. There may be practical issues around completing the construction work or preserving the property until it can be completed. Our specialist property lawyers have over many years acted successfully for builders, property developers, joint venturers, architects, surveyors, structural engineers and building owners.
Whether it is a large development or a house extension, whether the dispute relates to defective works or non payment we will take time to understand the full history of the matter with a view to working out what is at the heart of the dispute. We will go through the various options with you including adjudication, arbitration, mediation, negotiation or litigation before providing you with clear, practical advice as to the most cost effective solution. We recognise that in a lot of cases these disputes can be a significant and unwanted distraction from your core business so that the sooner we can resolve the dispute on reasonable terms the better.
If the resolution of the dispute requires restructuring of any corporate vehicles used in connection with the development project we will be able to call upon the skills and experience of our Commercial & Corporate team.
