DISPUTE AVOIDANCE AND
Helping our clients avoid disputes is key to the services we deliver. Our strategic commercial management and front-end
programming and project monitoring services are particularly focused on providing our clients with the knowledge and tools to avoid
formal dispute resolution proceedings. Our extensive practical experience enables us to identify potential risks before they develop
into more complex disputes, allowing our clients to consider proactive measures to monitor and manage those issues.
Even on the most well-managed projects however, disputes can still arise between the parties. Driver Trett offers focused, practical
support and assistance in relation to cost, time or project management issues. We work closely with our clients, including contractors,
subcontractors, consultants, developers and legal firms, to deliver robust and effective solutions. Our involvement can start at
the preliminary investigative and preparation stage, and run through to assistance in commercial discussions and negotiations, or
formal dispute processes such as mediation, adjudication, arbitration and litigation. Selected members of our team can also act as
mediators, adjudicators, arbitrators or independent evaluators, offering our clients the full breadth of dispute resolution services to
suit their needs.
