We therefore focus on resolving a dispute through skillful and structured negotiation, ensuring that the strengths of our client’s case are put forward in an effective manner so that the opponent’s mind is focussed on the risks of litigating.
We help our clients involved in litigation and building disputes, building contracts and contractor disputes.
It is imperative to obtain legal advice about building disputes as soon as possible from a specialist property dispute solicitor, as disputes over building contracts or construction contracts can become very expensive and troublesome adding to the delay in completing a building project.
Taking advice from an expert building disputes solicitor early on can prove invaluable in avoiding significant legal fees as resolving a building dispute sooner rather than later is best practice and keeps costs to a minimum.
