Security of Payment Disputes

Over 20 Years

Just Law have been working within the parameters of building dispute litigation for over 20 years. With a long and successful body of work dealing with a huge range of building disputes and building contracts, you can trust Just Law to handle any issue surrounding building and construction litigation.

That being said, it is one of the most technical areas of law, and unfortunately, without the right type of professional aid, the parties involved can often find themselves in courtrooms or with costly expenses and hefty legal bills.

Just Law has been involved in a plethora of building dispute litigation cases, from both sides of the proverbial coin. Often, a mediation is the best way to settle a building dispute, and is usually the course of action that most people feel comfortable with before it ends up as a tribunal hearing or in the intimidating confines of a courtroom.

Mediation is a fairly straightforward process in which the respective parties and their lawyers meet with an independent, trained mediator, who offers an objective viewpoint, and thus works through the building dispute to find a suitable solution. Unfortunately, and in Just Law’s experience, many building contracts often result in a mediation process, where even the courts insist on the parties undergoing such a process before entering their chambers. It is an effective method, but again, it pays to have knowledgeable legal advice from firms such as Just Law in your corner during the mediation process, as part of working through the legal twists and turns that comprise building dispute litigation.

While the mediation process is a common one and offers some clarity or an outside voice, many building disputes go beyond that and towards the process of arbitration. An arbitrator is different from a mediator, in that the arbitrator has powers to determine the dispute, just like a Judge would in an actual court case, while the mediator only has powers to persuade the parties to settle.

For everything when it comes to building dispute litigation, Just Law is a firm you can trust with the right type of advice, strong representation during mediation or court appearances, and a resource in which will go a long way in helping you resolve your dispute.

If the case goes to hearing Just Law will co-ordinate and instruct all necessary experts who we choose for their experience and expertise and high quality analysis and evidence. James Gray does all his own advocacy, so you don’t have to pay 2 lawyers at a hearing!
