Construction Law - Construction Claims

We recognize that construction claims differ from other types of commercial and contract disputes. This is due to the unique nature of the construction industry and to the sheer volume of documents and issues that are common characteristics of construction litigation. We also know that the effective documentation, preparation and presentation of a construction claim are often critical to successful outcomes. Our claims experience, coupled with our knowledge of the construction industry itself, leaves us well equipped to assist clients on both sides of a construction dispute, from those which arise during the tendering process through to holdback distribution and warranty claims.
