About the Speaker:

Chris leads on the team’s dispute resolution, litigation and adjudication matters. His practice encompasses all stages of construction disputes from initial advisory work and input on ongoing commercial negotiations on live projects through to complex adjudications and multi-party claims in the Technology & Construction Court (TCC). He has considerable experience in devising and implementing effective strategies to resolve disputes at an early stage, and regularly resolves complex disputes by way of mediation.

As well as being an experienced negotiator, Chris specialises in representing parties in adjudications and claims in the TCC, where he has particular experience in dealing with claims involving insolvency issues, complex professional negligence claims arising from design failings, and claims against insurers.

Session Title:

Resolving Construction Disputes in the Real World

With the construction sector facing a sustained period of exceptional price volatility, it is not uncommon for a party to have assumed a level of contractual risk that they become simply unable to bare. A real world approach is therefore often essential to unlock an impasse or resolve a dispute, to enable the project to move forward. Our joint seminar will explore some potential real world solutions that may be deployed, including means by which contracts can be re-negotiated, the scope of works revised and/or conditional settlement reached, exploring the key legal and quantum issues involved.
