Expert Determination

Expert determination is a great tool for resolving disputes of a technical nature where the issue at hand is one of fact rather than law. 

Early Neutral Evaluation

A neutral evaluation by an experienced third-party can help form decisions based on realistic outcomes.

Dispute Boards

Resolving conflicts at an early stage, or even before they arise, greatly minimises costs such as legal fees.


This process can be tailored to suit parties’ particular needs. Speedier and cheaper than court, arbitration is confidential and offers limited grounds for appeal.


Parties are afforded more control over proceedings as a request for adjudication can be commenced during the course of works.


Speedy, confidential, and a less adversarial process, mediation can be used to solve a variety of disputes.
