Dispute Resolution (Construction and Contracts)
We have specialised knowledge of the construction industry and its key players. This enables us to manage and mentor your project through every stage of development – from conceptual design and tender to building and construction. Our involvement at each stage anticipates your needs, saving you not only enormous time and money but also foreseeing and resolving potentially litigious matters.
The essence of contract law is the ability to provide advice that is practical and commercially relevant. We are dedicated to serving your best interests.
When the success of your project hinges upon selecting the best tender for the job, we provide expert assessment, detailed analysis of contractual risks and strategic advice.
We will tailor a team which has the integrated resources to manage every aspect of your project in the most timely and cost-effective manner. You will have direct access to senior partners throughout the lifetime of the development. We deal with all collateral issues, such as insurance, uninsured risk, GST and regulatory industry code requirements.
Building and construction
Our involvement begins at the ground level with the drafting and negotiation of building and construction contracts. We oversee the enforcement of such agreements and assist clients to resolve potentially litigious matters, achieving timely and appropriate solutions. Our advice and involvement can extend for the duration of the project, sometimes covering a period of many years.
We will negotiate a range of contracts on your behalf, deal with relevant authorities and draft documents that are clear, concise and all-inclusive. Complex agreements expressed in plain English are our strength.
Dispute resolution, arbitration and litigation
Disputes arising at any stage of your project are dealt with promptly and effectively by our experienced team. We have acted for all parties in the construction process, including engineers, contractors, sub-contractors and suppliers. Delay and disruption claims, construction and design defect claims, labour issues, breach of contract claims, environmental claims and numerous other issues are realities of the industry and can have serious financial consequences. We are driven by one goal - the best possible outcome for our clients.
Impact of environmental and sustainability issues
Environmental and sustainability issues have become key components of any new development. We advise on the application of environmental frameworks to your project and we formulate cost-effective compliance measures.
