Construction and Engineering Disputes
Our Construction team consists of both transactional and dispute resolution lawyers.
We understand that construction disputes require an understanding of the many different laws and procedures that often apply. We also understand the time pressures that can be placed upon those in the construction industry who are involved in a dispute due to the right of a party to a "construction contract" to refer any dispute to adjudication "at any time". Adjudication is largely unique to the construction sector as a form of dispute resolution and the time pressures involvement in an adjudication places on your management and staff can be immense. We are highly experienced in this field and can help.
In addition to adjudication we have extensive experience of litigation (in the Technology and Construction Court, the County Court and the High Court), arbitration, mediation, expert determination, early neutral evaluation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
We also have experience of the various types of contract used in the construction industry and can advise you in this area. Depending on your bargaining position we can tailor construction contracts to your specific needs or negotiate often one sided contracts so that the parties are operating on a more level playing field.
We operate across all areas in the construction sector, providing clients with practical and commercial advice based on our extensive experience. Our approach to fees is flexible and everything will be tailored to your specific situation.
Allow Hallmark to help you stay one step ahead of the game.
