Specific Cases of Real Estate Litigation
You may be a general contractor or developer and your dispute is with the specialist contractors or suppliers that have been hired to provide specific services or materials for construction.

If you are a specialist supplier or contractor and your dispute is with the property owner, whether this is a private homeowner or a commercial property owner, we endeavor to thoroughly investigate all those claims where responsibility has been deliberately diverted towards the client when the construction or supply materials defects have in fact been caused by another party.
You may also be a homeowner or a commercial property owner and you have a dispute with a general contractor over defective construction materials or practices. We endeavor to use the experience and knowledge of experts in the construction industry in order to make a fair assessment of the defects and the cost of making the repair as well as other costs involved. These costs include the loss of business revenue, the possible need for extra storage facilities or even relocation while the defects are repaired.
