Dispute Solutions

With experience working on some of the world’s most iconic mega-projects, Plus 3 provides our clients in the commercial and construction fields with Testifying Expert Witnesses, Arbitrators, Mediators and Adjudicators – local knowledge with global expertise … supporting our clients to reach amicable resolutions.

Disputes can arise when parties are unable to find any grounds for compromise in the settlement of any final account. Typically, disputes arise from disagreements over onerous contract terms, unrealistic programme obligations or incomplete design, and when the parties lose sight of the reasonable or common grounds for settlement, the dispute can often become ‘personal’. Where one party believes he’s entitled to more money, the other party pushes back – leaving the only route to settlement being through the application of the contract’s dispute clause.

Through our Dispute Services division, Plus 3’s experts can provide services to support parties in dispute in three key areas:

  • Litigation Support
  • Tribunals and Expert Determination
  • Expert Witness
