Services - Dispute Management

It is a matter of fact that on any construction or development project that disputes can materialise. Indeed many would argue that the standard construction contract models encourage variations and design changes and provide for claims for an extension to the completion date and the payment of additional monies. What is more is that the timing of decisions or instructions may impact on progress and costs. The evaluation of the impact of those decisions and instructions and subsequent claims for additional time and monies often result in a dispute.

It is critical that when any dispute starts to evolve or eventually crystallises that appropriate strategies are adopted to either maximise the contractual entitlement or defend any claim that is made.

A key part of the strategy will be the overall dispute management. Many of our Clients do not have the time or specific expertise to overall manage the complexities of a typical dispute and often engage our services to manage the dispute so that the time of its managers and staff can be better focussed on doing what they do best, which is managing and carrying out the daily business activities.

Contract Dispute Solutions has extensive and invaluable experience in managing disputes. Our blend of commercial and professional contract skills enables us to put in place appropriate strategies and drive those strategies through to a solution that best fits our Clients needs in all the circumstances.

The extensive and invaluable experience is also used to facilitate and act as a conduit between all Parties that form part of the dispute management team both representing our Client and the opposing Party including in house or external Lawyers or finance directors.

Our focus is to use our professional skills and experience to provide proactive dispute management which enables our Clients to benefit from a professional blend which will lead to proactive solutions.
