Oli provides straightforward, commercially pragmatic advice to manage disputes. As well as formal, traditional methods, Oli has experience in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, adjudication, and expert determination, as well as progressing claims from their outset through the pre-action protocol for construction and engineering disputes. Oli is familiar with virtually all types of construction dispute, including the recovery of interim payments, defective works, delay and entitlement to extensions of time, loss and expense, final account, and insurance issues.
Oli has successfully recovered and defended millions of pounds for clients, often in quick order based on payment disputes arising out of procedural issues. In addition, Oli's main caseload consists of high value and/or complex disputes for main and sub-contractors on traditional building projects and civil engineering schemes, pursued through proceedings in the Technology and Construction Court (TCC), adjudication, or arbitration as appropriate. Oli's knowledge of legal processes and experience of construction disputes make him a go-to choice for many household name construction and engineering firms in the Cambridge, its surrounding regions and beyond.
