Dispute Resolution

We have a strongly held belief that for any potential dispute it is better to try and mediate a mutually beneficial outcome for all parties before it becomes more costly to resolve and we will seek the most commercial and cost effective route towards conflict avoidance or resolution. However, if the problem persists or becomes more serious our close alliance with Watson Burton LLP enables us to escalate to adjudication any difficult projects to get a fair outcome – accordingly dispute resolution enquiries are very welcome.
