We offer a full service dispute resolution service to clients from across the construction industry and are regularly involved in the most complex, high value construction disputes in Scotland.
Brodies solicitors represent a wide range of clients from across the public and private sectors in Scotland. These include local authorities, developers, contractors, specialist sub-contractors, construction professionals and insurance companies.
In the current market, where maintaining cash flow is vital to clients, good tactical and strategic advice on disputes is essential. We are often instructed to advise clients in the background to a dispute, allowing them to make key decisions and sometimes to negotiate their own settlements.
On more developed disputes we offer a flexibility of approach tailored to our clients' needs. This means that at any point in time our team will be involved in a range of adjudications, arbitrations and court actions. We are keen exponents of alternative dispute resolution methods where appropriate, and we have been involved in the settlement of a number of multi-party, multi-million pound disputes by mediation.
We act for clients in the following types of disputes regardless of complexity or value:
- Payment disputes
- Professional negligence actions
- PFI/PPP disputes
- Delay claims
- Technical engineering disputes
We have been representing members of the Association for Consultancy & Engineering for 30 years, and more recently have been appointed as Scottish lawyers to the Building & Engineering Services Association, providing training and representation to its members. Exposure to the technical claims that these organisations' members face has given us an unparalleled expertise in the resolution of complex engineering disputes.
