Dispute Management and Resolution

SDQS recognises that clients benefit from avoiding disputes and we always seek to secure the most economically beneficial resolution of any contentious issues that may arise.

SDQS also appreciates however, that clients are often required to make or defend formal submissions in order to protect their rights. SDQS’ experience of construction contracts and dispute resolution procedures allows it to effectively advise its clients on the most suitable method of resolving their disputes.

SDQS regularly reviews contract terms and conditions on behalf of its clients in order to identify areas of risk and opportunity.

Contract Claims

SDQS’ consultants are all experienced in the preparation of claims for extensions of time; loss and/or expense; damages; disruption, and; variations.

SDQS also regularly assesses and defends claims made against its clients and is skilled in the art of claims negotiation.

Many contracts impose strict procedural requirements upon the parties which must be met if compensation is to be successfully claimed, or if speculative claims are to be successfully defended. SDQS’ understanding of contractual mechanisms enables it to manage its clients’ compliance with required procedures in order to safeguard their rights
