Constructing buildings are regularly challenged with tight schedules and even tighter budgets. Other challenges include skills gaps and labour shortages, as well as inflation and supply chain uncertainty. This combination of complexities mean that disputes arise on a regular basis, which can require the assistance of a expert.

An expert witness who has many years of experience in complex disputes that arise in building projects can help you work your way through challenging and daunting dispute matters.
