Global experience in dispute advisory
Services that help minimise time, cost and performance impact
Contract Administration and Conflict Avoidance
We are conversant with causes of failure in property, construction and engineering contracts. This provides us with the tools to implement best practice procurement strategies and to assist in the creation of contracts and agreements in line with client’s goals. We collaborate with clients and their legal advisors to develop appropriate lower risk procurement strategies which promote successful project outcomes.
Quantum, Cost Evaluation and Audits
Working on projects across the globe, throughout all sectors, we have the unique cost data to provide informed and convincing opinions on quantum and cost effects associated with commercial matters. EPC, Cost Plus audits and forensic reviews of project records determine allowable and disallowable costs and compliance with scheduling and contract provisions.
Delay and Schedule Impact Analysis
Our experts are experienced in all aspects of the contributing factors affecting scheduling. Using programming and data we can model the planned, impacted and ‘as-built’ schedules (or programmes) and sequence of works to predict the causes and impact of delays.
“Zlota 44 is one of the highest and most advanced residential buildings in Europe. This added a lot of complexity to the proceedings before the International Court of Arbitration, where our team diligently supported the investor as cost controller and contract manager.”

Claims Preparation and Defence
We act for all parties in property, construction and engineering contracts and we are knowledgeable in the requirements needed to advance and defend contractual claims. This means that we can assist clients by applying informed knowledge to understand their risk and financial exposure in advancing or defending claims.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
No matter how organised you may be, disputes will always be a probability; and it doesn’t take much for them to escalate in time, cost, and stress. Our framework of alternative dispute resolution methods reduces all three and provides peace of mind and commercial solutions.
Expert Witness and Advisor
Our specialists are often instructed by legal representation to act as expert advisor and expert witness in litigations, arbitration, adjudications and other tribunal settings. Our depth of project experience and professional knowledge means that we can act in a variety of industry sectors and geographical locations.
