Handling Disputes

Construction Dispute Resolution
is at the heart of our business

Handling Disputes

We know that cash flow is the lifeblood of the industry. We have the specialist skills and expertise to protect your interests in the supply chain and to ensure your profits keep flowing.

The law surrounding construction is complex. Disputes can be an inevitable consequence and they can be costly and stressful experiences, impacting on profit and productivity. Often entering into a dispute resolution process (whether adjudication, arbitration, mediation, expert determination or litigation) can be the only option to vindicate your rights, protect cash flow or secure liquidity.

Construction is at the centre of Taylor Law’s expertise. We act for all stakeholders in the construction sector including developers, builders, subcontractors, project managers, architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and suppliers.

We can advise clients on a wide range of issues relating to construction disputes, including:

  • Snaggings that are not being rectified
  • Retentions and final accounts not being paid
  • Contractors delaying
  • Extensions of time not being awarded
  • Variations
  • Disconform work.
  • Works over charged or the value not being paid

We have the specialist skills required to advise on the form of contract best suited for your project. We can do so whether the contracts are on industry standard forms, bespoke, or a combination of both. We also have a wealth of experience in:

  1. Mediation
  2. Expert determination
  3. Adjudication
  4. Arbitration
  5. Litigation (in the Sheriff Court and the Court of Session)

 

If you are involved in a construction project, big or small, contact us. It could be the best procurement you make.
