Construction and engineering disputes

Disputes in the construction and engineering industry are all too common and can be raised during the project or any time within, generally speaking, 12 years after the project has been completed. There are many reasons why disputes arise, the most common being non-payment, defects and delays.

We pride ourselves on the early and proactive management of disputes with a view to minimising the cost and disruption to your project and business.

Our focus is to ensure that you understand the strengths and weaknesses of your position from the earliest stage possible to settle on an agreed strategy and, if appropriate, provide you with the necessary guidance to resolve the dispute yourselves.

Dispute resolution

There are a number of options available to parties (subject to the terms of any contract) to resolve the dispute(s). Click on each of the following to find out more:

Damages Based Agreements

Flint Bishop’s Construction & Engineering team can provide your business with cost-effective solutions to recovering outstanding debt through using a Damages Based Agreement.

It is a way for you to pursue cases through adjudication with reduced risk based on a ‘no-win-no-fee’ arrangement under which you agree to pay us a percentage of the amount that you recover. You only pay our fee if you win the adjudication and recover an amount of money.
