Construction and Engineering Disputes

Mincoffs Solicitors have particular experience in dealing with construction law and engineering dispute resolution. Our highly skilled lawyers are noted for their ability to apply imaginative and strategic thinking in order to find solutions to often highly complex and technical problems. Our lawyers invest the time necessary to find out about the nature of each client’s business and the exact scope of the work to be done.

Our objective is to put our clients in a position of strength from the start. This is done by adopting the most effective method of dispute resolution available in each case. This could be adjudication, arbitration or litigation, or some form of alternative dispute resolution. We have extensive experience in these areas and work closely with our clients and their other advisers to quickly gain a clear understanding of their key issues and needs. We recognise that each situation is different and requires a tailor made solution which provides the very best possible outcome in the dispute and ultimately for your business.

We are commonly engaged by clients to assist them from the earliest stages in finding negotiated settlements that enable them to avoid long and costly proceedings. We are also engaged to fight their cases in proceedings.

We can provide advice and assistance on the following areas:

  • Adjudication and arbitration including international arbitration
  • Bonds, guarantees and sureties
  • Collateral/consultant warranties
  • Construction and engineering contracts and consultants’ appointment contracts
  • Construction insurance
  • Drafting and negotiating construction contracts
  • Injunctions

Stewart Irvine was incredibly helpful, friendly and understanding of a difficult family situation. Stewart listened to my wishes and concerns and was as passionate. On a personal level, I am really interested in law and Stewart spent time explaining how the law works and why we were taking actions in the way we were. I really appreciated this approach and this allowed me to feel confident in the decisions that I was making. I'm really grateful to Stewart for all his guidance and support. I truly felt that Stewart had our best interests at heart throughout the process.
