Our specialist solicitors have represented numerous clients in relation to contractual disputes relating to a construction project.

If mediation has not been successful then refer the dispute to either arbitration or litigation depending on what is agreed in the contract. It involves an independent expert, Arbitrator (CIArb) examining material facts and documents from the parties. The decision of the expert is usually legally binding, and you will not be able to go to court afterwards if you don’t like the decision. Arbitration services often charge a fee.



    • Like mediation, arbitration is a confidential process.
    • Parties can agree on an Arbitrator who has relevant experience in the matter.
    • Compared to court proceedings, it is a relatively quick process.
    • It is highly flexible compared to court proceedings.


  • It is the parties’ responsibility to bear the costs of both the Arbitrator and the venue where the arbitration is to take place.
  • There are limited powers of compulsion or sanction available to the arbitrator if one party fails to comply with the directions set by the arbitrator.
  • There are limited appeal rights available during arbitration.
  • Costs can be similar to litigation at court.
