Our approach to disputes starts with minimising the risk of litigation.
Key to this is the ability to resolve disputes through alternative dispute resolution processes (“ADR”) The most common of all ADR processes is adjudication which remains one of the most cost effective methods of resolving disputes between parties in the shortest possible time.
If inevitably disputes do occur, our team of ADR specialists supported by industry experts are available to assist throughout the entire process until final resolution.
Our latest experiences involve major mining, infrastructure, building, power, energy, oil and gas projects in Southern, Eastern and Western Africa, including several negligence claims against major engineering houses across the continent.
Strategy is a matter of thinking ahead and planning for the outcome.
A contract represents more than just an allocation of risk. It dictates the commercial rules under which we act and are held accountable to.
Risk management is defined as the identification, evaluation and mitigation of circumstances that may have an adverse effect on the project.
Labour is an essential part of our focussed industries and crucial to project and socio-economic success.
The principles surrounding negligence are often misunderstood, leading to dire consequences for professionals and the companies they represent.
Arbitrations have become the preferred method of bringing finality to disputes between parties.
