Dispute Avoidance and Adjudication
Disputes are a common feature in the construction sector and can potentially have far-reaching impacts on the project in the form of additional costs, delayed completion and opportunity costs.
Construction disputes are primarily technical in nature. They may arise during the execution of the project or post project completion. More often than not, if the disputes are not resolved quickly and efficiently they lead to a cascading effect on the project and stakeholders.
Our experts can work with Clients at early stage of the procurement process and during project execution to help and support clients to avoid disputes and manage their disputes resolution cases if and when they materialize. We further provide dispute adjudication services by providing experts to be on the Dispute Adjudication Boards.
