Dispute Resolution

    Bowdon Consulting is dedicated to providing effective solutions to construction disputes and enabling our clients to avoid conflict where possible and to manage and resolve it when necessary.

    Most construction and PFI contracts now contain dispute resolution provisions based on adjudication. For many contracts these provisions arise out of statute law. In other contracts the parties have opted for adjudication to provide for a quick method of dispute resolution. We adopt a commercially sensible approach at all times.

    Bowdon can provide you with a succinct summary of your position and your options when confronted with a dispute. Our extensive experience of contracts and projects over many years has equipped our highly qualified consultants with an in-depth knowledge of the many techniques for resolving disputes.

    We work with clients, contractors, sub-contractors and consultants to advise on dispute resolution including the preparation of referrals, responses and other documents.
