Our lawyers have extensive experience in managing, avoiding and resolving construction disputes across a range of construction industries. We take pride on offering commercial and innovative dispute resolution strategies.
We understand litigation is a last resort but if the decision is made to litigate we have been involved in complex construction litigation in most Supreme Courts as well as the High Court.
Deciding when to litigate is a skill and we won’t put you into litigation unless it is absolutely necessary.
Alternate dispute resolution
Alternate dispute resolution or ADR can take many forms: mediation; arbitration; expert determination; joint appraisal; or dispute resolution boards.
We are highly experienced with all forms of ADR processes and approach ADR as an opportunity to avoid litigation and resolve disputes quickly for clients.
Security of Payment (adjudication)
Our lawyers are very knowledgeable on ‘Security of Payments’ and have experience with almost all regimes in place across Australia.
We act for both claimants and respondents in preparing adjudication applications and adjudication responses, advising generally on Security of Payment issues and Court applications about Adjudication Determinations
