We believe in being open with clients about costs from the outset so that you know your likely financial exposure in advance. We keep you advised on a regular basis as the litigation proceeds on the costs against the budget. We also work closely with a number of litigation funders to assist in claim financing where this is necessary.
Druces for Business
Druces for Business
We have a strong multi-disciplinary Construction team that provides dispute advice and assistance to a wide range of owners, developers, contractors, specialist sub-contractors and consultants across the construction and engineering sector.
Why choose Druces’ Construction Litigation team?
The team has a deep knowledge of the sector and is experienced in providing advice on all forms of disputes and the tactics to be deployed. We understand that disputes are part of construction and engineering, and in our experience, no two disputes are quite the same.
Every dispute is unique, and we are well versed in the methods of dispute resolution. Whether you are engaged in or preparing for a court claim or arbitration we can help. Members of the team regularly act for clients in the Technology and Construction Court, from following the Construction and Engineering Pre-Action Protocol through to trials in the TCC; we can guide you through the process. We believe in utilising modern technology to simplify and streamline the dispute process and work closely with litigation support to provide our clients with the best possible assistance.
The Construction team is also highly experienced in conducting arbitrations, both domestic and international.
Experienced and professional litigators
We work closely with barristers and the other experts needed to drive your case forward and obtain the best possible outcome. We always assemble the right team for your particular case and firmly believe in working collaboratively with you and the rest of the professional team. This mentality allows us to provide a service to our clients on par with law firms far larger than Druces. Coupled to that is the strength and experience of our team, having worked at some of the leading construction law firms in the country, enabling us to provide an unrivalled and client-centric service.
Guidance through the litigation process
We take you through each step of the litigation process, from pleading your case to the preparation of expert reports and witness evidence. We are experienced in dealing with electronic disclosure and work with litigation support to ensure the process runs smoothly for clients.
Early in the process we discuss the outcome that you want to achieve and bring our experience of settling cases to bear. We provide pragmatic and commercially astute advice to clients on litigation strategies. This includes carefully planned litigation tactics to maximise the potential for an early settlement or to push the matter to trial.
