Dispute Resolution Team

With over 100 years of combined experience, Adair’s highly qualified and diverse Dispute Resolution team has the knowledge and understanding of the construction industry to provide services on a wide array of construction disputes.

We offer a full range of services for the complete and successful resolution of a dispute including:

• Quantum Expert Witness
• Forensic Delay Expert Witness
• Claims preparation and defence
• Contractual Advice
• Adjudication
• Arbitration
• Mediation
• Litigation

We are regularly instructed to provide Independent Expert opinion on the quantum of a dispute on behalf of either the claiming or defending party or as a joint independent expert acting for both parties. We are fully equipped to be instructed during the process of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) proceedings and maintain the capacity to begin Adjudications with minimal notice, providing our expert services for either referring or responding party’s.

Our Dispute Resolution service can go over and above the preparation of reports and cost schedules with senior members having the skills, experience and knowledge to take part in mediation negotiations or attending court days to provide evidence.

“In terms of Justin

1. We instruct him on a number of cases worth several million (or tens of millions) of pounds. He is our “go to” QS for high value and complex litigation, but also on urgent matters (such as adjudications that required a consistently high level of service;

2. His report writing is first class and he has an excellent appreciation of his role, function and duties.  I have not seen him cross-examined because none of our cases have reached that point, but I understand that he has good experienced in the box; and

3. He has a great team around him, so we always know that he will deliver to urgent deadlines.

In short, Justin is excellent.  I could not recommend him highly enough.”
