Construction litigation

Construction litigation overview

The Construction Team is “instructed in a wide range of matters including high-value arbitrations in the Middle East and significant domestic litigation” (Chambers UK). Its practitioners deal with the full range of Construction, Energy and Engineering disputes, from Bonds and Guarantees, through Construction All Risks Insurance, Professional Liability matters, Defects, Disruption and Delay.

Recent work has seen practitioners instructed on disputes over the construction of the Rolls Building, the Emirates Stadium, damage to a Greek Power Plant caused by a defective transformer, a dispute over the defective piling and floor slab in Europe’s largest wine warehouse (Accolade v VolkerFitzpatrick et al [2015] (TCC)) and numerous other matters closer to home.

Gatehouse Chambers’ modern and forward thinking approach, coupled with members’ genuine expertise in Construction, Energy and Engineering disputes has seen its practitioners recommended in numerous directories and nominated for various awards. Amongst many accolades, members have been shortlisted for Construction Silk of the year 2016 (Legal 500), and the Construction Team is said to contain “bona fide construction specialists”, “commercial problem solvers” and “tenacious advocates”, with more junior practitioners having “experience and abilities beyond their year of call”.

The Construction Team runs a popular programme of masterclass lectures entitled ‘An Introduction to Construction Law’ through which practitioners will share their expertise in the essentials of Construction law, from Adjudication to All Risks Insurance.
