Our members are able to assist not only with traditional construction disputes that are frequently associated with the TCC, but include strength in professional negligence claims against construction professionals.

We carry out advisory and advocacy work in relation to TCC claims in the High Court and County Court, as well as by Alternative Dispute Resolution, including arbitration, adjudication (whether under contract or statute) and mediation. Some of our barristers are also arbitrators, adjudicators and mediators and can be instructed to determine or facilitate the determination of these disputes. We also accept instructions for expert determination work.

Our construction work includes advice and representation in relation to payment claims, whether as a debt action or arising in adjudications and the enforcement of adjudication decisions by the High Court. We also act in relation to claims in relation to defective work, delay and disruption and loss and expense claims. We also handle disputes arising in projects which have used standard form contracts, such as those published by the Joint Contracts Tribunal ('JCT') and the Institution of Civil Engineers (such as the ICE / ICC and NEC3 forms).

Our professional negligence expertise encompasses acting on both sides of claims against construction professionals such as architects, civil and mechanical engineers, project managers, quantity surveyors and other specialised advisers in this sector.
