We provide expert advice through every stage of the construction cycle, including procurement strategy, contract structure and negotiation of construction contracts. Our approach begins with dispute avoidance, where our first step is getting a construction contract that meets your needs. Policies, procedures, precedents and training are put in place to ensure effective risk management during projects, although disputes can still happen. If adjudication does not result in final resolution of the dispute, other forms of dispute resolution such as mediation and conciliation, arbitration or court proceedings are available.
