We approached Arbicon to assist us in achieving a settlement for a payment dispute we had over a very large house we built for our Client. The Client disputed additional works and changes to the Specification, leaving us considerably under paid. Arbicon provided us with a great service, producing an advisory Expert Report which we relied upon heavily in the Mediation, allowing us to reach a settlement we were happy with.
Arbicon have worked with us for several years providing contractual advice, carrying out numerous contract reviews. We would not hesitate in recommending Arbicon’s services, their knowledge is exceptional, and their advice is invaluable. Using Arbicon to review our contracts means the risk of a dispute arising is lower, and if one does occur, we are in the strongest position possible.
Richard Arnott, Managing Director, Smoke Control Solutions Ltd
We were very impressed with Arbicon’s services, from initial enquiry the company was easy to deal with and communication was always excellent. Jonathan takes huge pride in the advice he provides and his knowledge of construction delays and the right to extension of time is excellent.
After a lessee denied that practical completion had been achieved for the refurbishment of a block of flats owned by us, we contacted Arbicon who provided expert advice on the way forward. Arbicon carried out inspections accordingly and provided us with detailed findings. We would not hesitate in recommending Arbicon’s services.

Having known Simon from old, it was a pleasant experience to get back in touch to resolve a dispute with a subcontractor. From engagement to resolution, Simon was attentive and understanding of our situation and provided clear and concise advice to go forward with. Simon went one step further to identify other improvements to one of our commercial processes of which we acted upon and instructed. I am very pleased with Arbicon’s care and attention to our commercial structure.
Luke Boekestyn, Director, Burmor Construction
I can highly recommend Arbicon for their excellent service regarding my boundary issue. They were very thorough in their report leaving no stone unturned. Their experience and professionalism was exemplary giving me great support. The staff are very polite, and helpful and communication was pleasant. Perfect.
Arbicon’s expert team proved that we were entitled to the full extension of time for delays caused by Covid-19 and variations to the works ordered by the Main Contractor. This meant that the alleged contra charge and prolongation costs against us were void and we were delighted with the payment recovered in the negotiated settlement agreement. Arbicon provided us with a very professional service, and we would highly recommend them to other Subcontractors with a payment dispute.
Barry Edwards, Director, B.A.E Plumbing and Heating Ltd
We were very happy with the initial adjudication service provided by Arbicon, hence why we instructed the team to defend us in the subsequent adjudication for the same construction project. We were delighted that they successfully defended both claims, their expertise led to the decisions that payments were in fact due to us. The Arbicon team acted in a consistently professional and empathetic manner throughout and Harvey Cooke’s wealth of knowledge and clarity of thinking ensured that we were always kept well-informed and were subsequently successful in each adjudication. We would not hesitate to use or recommend Arbicon’s services.
Sarah Henry, Company Secretary, Hambledon Plumbing and Heating Ltd
We found Arbicon very helpful and informative in our initial discussions, with costs and strategy made clear. Our claim was a low value one but important to us and it was disappointing that we were being badly treated having built over 300 houses for this Main Contractor. We were unaware of the powerful rights we had and needed assurance that we could pursue the claim commercially. Arbicon provided all of that and were totally sensitive to the cost effectiveness and helped us get payment for the contra charge deducted with one letter at a low cost. Totally worth every penny. Very professional and we would not hesitate to use Arbicon’s dispute resolution services in the future. Thank you Arbicon – Great job.
