Construction disputes

+ Add to binder

The economic, commercial and technical forces, which shape critical paths in large construction, are key for the principled and pragmatic conduct of construction disputes.

Being good at law is no longer enough: in-depth understanding of design phases, procurement processes and contracting standards, the readiness to learn from the engineers, and first hand site experience of demanding projects, such as hot-plant E/M works inside refineries or steel plants, are instrumental to high-impact construction dispute advocacy.

We base our edge in construction disputes on the proactive integration of all of these elements into our methods for analysing, preparing, arguing and proving construction cases. Our disputes partners have acted for owners and principals, owner's advisors, construction contractors, architectural and engineering firms and project finance lenders, in a variety of  construction disputes involving all engineering and construction phases in projects such as roads, railways, steel production, industrial gas production and co-production, and large commercial developments.

We have advised on the adoption and improvement of documentation systems and processes for unplanned events and contingencies, as well as on pre- and post-delivery expertise and arbitration, and have successfully arbitrated and litigated construction quality and warranty issues, engineer fees, specification and bill of quantities disputes, change orders, scope changes and interference claims, in managed, unit and fixed price projects.

We maintain close working relationships with leading consultants and industry experts in Greece and abroad, thus benefitting from a wide and deep pool of technical and industry know-how throughout cycle of each matter.
