SOLICITORS & CONSULTANTS - Opinions

 

The law surrounding building, construction and engineering projects is complex.  A general understanding of contract law is unlikely to suffice.  

The contract packages can run to hundreds of pages.  Considerable time is often needed to work through those pages before your client may be advised on his position in respect of the avoidance or resolution of a dispute.  But the absence of construction documents may mean that your client's position must be ascertained by application of complex law and implied rights.  So disputes surrounding even the smallest of projects with the minimum of documents may require specialist knowledge and experience.

Our principal solicitor, A. Ross Taylor, has that specialist knowledge and experience.  Ross holds a Master of Laws in Construction Law.  He is a member of Fife and Forth Valley Construction Forums.  He is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators - an organisation which has a keen interest in the construction sector.

Ross has advised on a broad range of disputes arising from construction projects, including delay and disruption, quality, valuation, risk allocation and contract interpretation.  He has assisted in resolving disputes involving six figure sums for clients of national standing.

An Opinion from Ross on your client's position in respect of a dispute (actual or potential), and on the merits of and strategy for progress, may make the difference between success and failure; commercial settlement or unnecessary cost.
