Our multiple qualifications in diverse fields and breadth of expertise in Design Engineering, Project Management, Project Controls, Scheduling, Quantity Surveying and the Law, uniquely positions us to engage on behalf of our clients with a wide range of participants in construction disputes (engineers, QSs and planners/ schedulers, legal counsel, external lawyers and barristers) with complete understanding of industry-specific language and terminology.
Our multi-qualified and highly experienced technico-legal specialists take the time to get to know our client’s unique situation. Our commissions range from a simple review and report, where we provide an opinion as an independent expert, to the preparation and documentation of a claim management strategy that supports our client’s rights. We are also registered solicitors and engineers, so we can assist our clients with the more complex dispute resolution and litigation proceedings.
We encourage and promote early settlement of disputes to reduce claim preparation costs, reduce dispute times, and lower the personal toll that construction disputes can take on clients. However, we do not want to place them in the strongest negotiating position.
We strive to support our clients across the building, infrastructure, rail and metro, mining, and oil and gas industries and take pride in the referrals and repeat business that have gained us the loyalty of our clients and have been pivotal in our growth.

Industries in which we work.
Roads, Bridges, Overpasses, & Detours. Unexpected conditions can disrupt road, highway, and rail construction projects. This can lead to scope changes, disruptions, and cost overruns. Lump-sum projects with a fixed completion date affected by these are more susceptible to claims than projects based on the schedule of rates with a more flexible construction schedule.
Electrical, Windfarms, & Solar. Wind farm projects have a lot in common with IKEA furniture, as turbines come in flatpacks consisting of tower, turbine, blades, and container with components. We dealt with issues such as unsuitable access roads and damaged blades, incorrect components, outdated manuals, and failures to obtain AEMO approvals (which was also our assistance). We also served as expert witnesses in cost disputes.
