Experts in resolving construction law disputes
Even in the best-procured and well-run projects, disagreements can occur. In such cases Blake Morgan’s Construction Law Disputes team has a huge wealth of experience to provide the best advice to clients about how to pursue (or avoid) disputes.
Our specialist lawyers have a well-established track record handling cases through adjudication, litigation and arbitration. At the same time, we always consider the options afforded by Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) whether by negotiation, mediation, neutral expert evaluation or otherwise.
