Dispute avoidance and resolution
Conflict can reduce profit and damage your trade. It can arise at any time and when things go wrong, blame can be quickly and unfairly apportioned. It's important, therefore, that disputes are identified and resolved as quickly, and as amicably, as possible. Davies & Davies will help you navigate and understand the legal complexities to resolve disputes as quickly and professionally as possible. Disputes arise when competing interests exist. In construction, the interests are generally the contractor (or sub-contractor) looking for maximum profit and the client looking for maximum value. Disputes arise when a contract is open to interpretation and the job goes wrong. Cost issues often exacerbate the dispute which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of all parties, can become emotional, replacing all reason. Appointing a specialist can avoid much time and cost, allowing you to get on with your business.
There are a number of dispute resolution techniques including:
- Expert determination
- Dispute resolution boards
Davies & Davies is qualified to advise on all of the above.
