HAL has considerable experience in the construction dispute resolution process, from informal negotiations through to supporting formal adjudications.
We initially will try to resolve disputes by discussion rather than launching headlong into formal adjudications by exploring the issues and determining common ground for early amicable settlement.
Our approach will always consider your business, especially the need to resolve matters quickly, but maintain business relationships where possible and use most commercially appropriate route to getting the required outcome. Whilst we can escalate the dispute to formal adjudication, or litigation or arbitration, we do consider these as a last resort and whatever the outcome these are usually damaging to your business in the longer term. We start with methods to produce resolution quickly in a professional and proactive manner.
However where legal proceedings are unavoidable we have excellent contacts with specialist construction dispute lawyers and work with them to produce the quantum support.
