Arbicon are experts in construction law, contracts and construction claims, our highly qualified team of Chartered Quantity Surveyors and construction claims consultants provide individual and tailored expert advice on a wide range of issues to both help set up your project to minimise claims and also manage and resolve claims quickly, effectively, and commercially should they occur.
Arbicon’s services include setting up contracts to avoid claims such as reviewing and drafting contract terms and conditions to minimise risk through to the assessment, drafting, presentation and management of construction claims such as quantum evaluation and variation claims, extension of time claims, forensic delay analysis, loss and expense for damages arising out of delay and disruption, defective works claims, contra charges and claims arising from repudiation and termination.
Arbicon’s forensic service is ideal for checking that contracts are being operated properly (e.g. document management, service of notices, valuation) or where it has all gone wrong, which naturally includes evaluating any professional management person(s) so as to avoid or rectify any damage by professional negligence, which can be difficult to reverse and incur a great deal of misery and cost.

If you have a dispute, Arbicon will manage your claim or defence with a rapid response. Your case will be managed through negotiation or formal dispute resolution proceedings such as adjudication, arbitration, or mediation.

We also offer the provision of independent expert witness evidence on claims for the purpose of litigation proceedings.
