Construction & Technology

Our Construction and Technology team act and advise in all aspects of domestic and international construction and engineering. The team are highly regarded for their approachability, practicality, high quality advice and excellent advocacy.

Our Construction and Technology team are made up of specialist barristers who act for all participants in construction projects, including employers, contractors, sub-contractors, and professional consultants. We work with our clients to ensure that each client is matched with a barrister with the appropriate experience levels, from silks with considerable international experience to more junior barristers.

We are regularly instructed in legally and technically complicated litigation in the TCC and the Court of Appeal.

Our Construction and Technology team have demonstrated considerable expertise in:

  • domestic and international litigation, arbitration, and ADR and are highly experienced in all aspects of adjudication and enforcement;
  • advising and acting on issues that can arise during the life cycle of a construction project, from the initial brief and pre-construction phase through to complaints over delay, quality and performance during the construction phase, as well as issues on handover;
  • disputes involving complex technical and scientific evidence, including mechanical engineering and construction materials; and
  • cases involving the professional liability of construction consultants and professionals.

We also have considerable expertise in related practice areas such as health and safety, technology, intellectual property, planning and compulsory purchase, insurance, public sector procurement, supply of goods, bonds and guarantees, finance and commercial, insolvency and property issues.

Lamb Chambers’ Construction and Technology group has significant experience in adjudication, acting for both referring and responding parties.

We acknowledge that the management of a dispute through the adjudication process can be a significant drain on contractors and employers alike, both in time and cost. As a means of simplifying the adjudication process and providing certainty on costs – which are not generally recoverable by the parties to the adjudication.
