Construction Disputes

If you request legal advice from Else’s construction solicitors at the start of a dispute, or even before a conflict arises, you could save a lot of time, trouble, and expense.

Many projects in the construction and engineering industries are by hit disputes at some stage. Projects are regularly made-up of several teams and numerous individuals so it’s not surprising there are often clashes over roles, responsibilities and contractual obligations.

Conflict may be prompted by allegations of faulty design or materials, poor workmanship, or delays over payments. Some disputes can be resolved relatively easily but others can escalate without careful handling and awareness of the legal issues.

Expectations and attitudes can vary within a workforce, even on a small scale development. This can resort in court action can be costly in time and money for the project.
