Our Service

On the contentious side, we work with clients to chase entitlements or defend claims, whether that is in the courts, arbitration, adjudication or other alternative dispute resolution procedures.

Quality legal advice is essential to bring or defend a complex construction claim. We work with clients to chase their entitlements or defend a claim regardless of the forum.
When drafting the construction documentation initially, our meticulous attention to detail reduces the likelihood of a dispute in the first instance.

Unfortunately, you cannot always avoid disputes. In which case, it is paramount that your legal advisors can employ processes to minimise risk and identify issues early and resolve them quickly.

Whether building a warehouse or a small residential development, you will not want your project delayed or disrupted. The effect of a dispute on the progress of construction can be catastrophic. Our construction team understands this and adopts innovative and dynamic dispute resolution approaches. We always aim primarily to resolve disputes informally without the need to instigate formal dispute resolution proceedings. This approach allows clients to act decisively to resolve the dispute and get the construction project back on track.

There are occasions when formal legal action is necessary and cannot be avoided. In such cases, Myerson’s dedicated construction team can help realise the best possible outcome by vigorously pursuing or defending your claim. Our construction team are experienced legal practitioners who are well-versed in dispute resolution procedures, whether arbitration, adjudication, expert determination, or litigation through the court system.

Whatever the size or nature of the dispute, our breadth of experience guarantees that we can help you realise the best possible outcome with a strategy that is tailored to your commercial circumstances.
