Construction Disputes

We help resolve building disputes and claims of all sizes, ranging from large commercial construction projects to smaller disputes on behalf of individuals with builders.

You will have our services carefully tailored to your needs and requirements to match the needs and requirements of the particular building dispute. All disputes are different and a strategy and approach which may be appropriate for one case may be entirely inappropriate for another.

If necessary, we will involve experts at an early stage, as we recognise this can help your dispute to be settled quickly and cost-effectively. At W Davies we have close ties with a number of specialists in various fields and easy access to many others.

We fully understand that sometimes the last thing you want to do when embroiled in a building dispute is to involve lawyers. That is why we get to the root of the problem quickly and work out the best solution for you.

Wherever possible, we try not to intrude in the project itself, as we fully understand that you want an effective, practical solution on the ground.

You may feel that you require only a little guidance on what to do and on what your options are. Once suitably advised, you will then have the confidence to implement the strategy and solution yourself. We encourage this where appropriate, as, ultimately, lawyers are a means to an end and not an end in themselves.

Our expertise covers:

  • Sub-contractor disputes
  • Engineering/Architectural disputes
  • Quantum meruit claims
  • Interpretation of contracts
  • Disputed Variation claims
  • Delays and Extension of Time claims
  • Defective work
  • Contaminated Land
  • Arbitration and court work.

If you have a problem or are in need of some guidance on any aspect of your construction project, you can call us for a free, confidential chat – whether you are a developer/ builder, or an individual.
