Resolving construction disputes

Where disputes are unavoidable, Holmes & Hills’ Construction Division are experienced in providing specialist legal advice and representation relating to a wide range of construction disputes. Advice provided by the team is pragmatic, prompt and commercial. Advice and representation is provided by solicitors specialising in Construction Law who deal solely with operators in and suppliers to the Construction industry.

Disputes between builders, trades people and consumers or businesses are often made more complicated by the lack of adequate or appropriate contract terms as well as the conduct of the parties once the works are underway.

In these situations there is a lot to be argued and much to be disputed, with expert legal representation likely to be pivotal in dictating the course of the dispute and its successful resolution.
