Arbitration can be a quicker process than court proceedings and a technically qualified person is able to understand the realities of the industry whilst applying the law to arrive at a final decision which can be enforced in the courts, if necessary.

We advise developers, main contractors, sub-contractors, specialist sub-contractors and construction professionals when they have problems getting the work carried out or getting paid. We regularly advise on an adjudicator’s decision that did not go in your favour.

The procedure can be established that best suits the issues in dispute.

Legal and expert fees are generally recoverable from the unsuccessful party, saving you and your business the cost.

Our construction team includes lawyers, construction professionals and chartered arbitrators so we have experience in helping clients to pursue claims and to defend them. The benefit of having qualified arbitrators is making sure you have the added strength when considering disputes and procedures from the arbitrator’s perspective, not just from the lawyer’s point of view, to achieve the best outcome, for you.
