Client or contractor not paying for completed works?

Contractors letting you down?

In the construction and engineering industries, delays and delivery problems can jeopardise the completion of the project on time and on budget. Specialist legal advice can help keep your project on track.

The law relating to construction and engineering is highly specialised with unique payment provisions and the common use of adjudication and industry standard forms of contract. Resolving a construction dispute effectively requires both an understanding of the relevant laws and how the industry operates. Having represented contractors, sub-contractors, surveyors, engineers and architects, the dispute resolution solicitors at Myers & Co have the necessary depth of expertise to help your business from the outset of a project or when a dispute arises.

It is advisable to have a good lawyer on board from the outset – drafting contracts, reviewing terms and conditions and negotiating deadlines and penalty clauses.

However if any problems do occur you can rely upon the dispute resolution solicitors at Myers & Co who are experienced in all types of construction dispute. Finding an agreed solution that maintains ongoing working relationships is often quicker and more cost-effective than going to court. Our lawyers have a high success rate in alternative dispute resolution processes including mediation, arbitration and adjudication.

We have advised on disputes which concern:

  • Entitlement to extensions of time
  • Entitlement to levy liquidated damages
  • Entitlement to loss and expense
  • Liability for defects
  • Entitlement to payment/to withhold payment
  • Omissions or variations to works
  • Suspension of works
  • Termination
  • Professional negligence

If the dispute cannot be resolved amicably Myers & Co assures you of the very best advice and representation at court, including proceedings at the Technology and Construction Court.

If problems arise as a result of advice from your professional team, then we are also experienced in obtaining compensation and redress in cases of professional negligence.

Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, our specialist team has helped a wide range of businesses resolve commercial disputes. For further advice contact Myers & Co on 01782 577000.
