Our team is experienced in advising parties to construction contracts which are involved in adjudication.
Adjudication is a simpler and a less expensive alternative to traditional litigation and allows parties to get a quick decision and move forward. It is an effective tool to resolve disputes which often relate to cash flow during the life of a project.
A party to a construction contract has the right to refer a dispute to adjudication at any time.
The construction team at B P Collins advises on all aspects of an adjudication, in particular: key contractual terms, identifying who is best placed to give evidence, what specialist external support may be required, as well as what documentation our clients will need to bring together.
What we do
Our approach in the construction team is to work with you to identify a proportionate strategy to achieve the outcome you need. We will clearly, and in plain English, work through the claim with you and give clear and strategic advice on how to move forward.
We help you prepare what is needed and support you through the process. We are experienced in all forms of dispute resolution – not just adjudication. This includes mediation as well as bringing or defending proceedings in court if, or when, necessary.
Our construction team is on hand to give you immediate advice at any stage of a construction project.
