The complexities of construction and engineering make every project vulnerable to areas of dispute.
Domestic or commercial, costing tens or hundreds of thousands, each project has its difficulties. Changes, unforeseen events, lack of information, poor communication, optimistic pricing and incomplete contract documentation are just some of the pinch points causing disputes.
Both as litigators and mediators we have experience of different types and levels of construction and associated professional negligence disputes.
The speed of mediation and ability to cut to issues which the parties see as the real root of the problem can save considerable time and money for everyone involved in the dispute and has the added bonus of giving the parties the chance to look beyond the dispute and perhaps salvage an otherwise doomed business relationship.
