Construction Disputes

Adjudication is one of the legal processes of resolving disputes. It is widely used in construction. Adjudication is often appropriate for resolving claims relating to interim payments, delay and disruption of the works, extensions of time for completion of the works, and determination of the final account. Adjudication can sometimes be used in complex claims relating to breach of contract, termination of a contract, professional negligence, etc. Our firm assists the participants in construction and engineering projects in adjudication process. Our services include drafting and serving the notice of adjudication, drafting and serving the referral notice, responding to the referral notice, meetings with the adjudicator, receiving an adjudicator's decision, and enforcing or challenging the adjudicator's decision.
