Construction Claims & Disputes

Welcome to the website of Construction Dispute Resolution Service

Founded by myself Andrew Flowerdew (see details) in 2003, I specialise in expert witness services for cases involving delay or disruption. However, I take on other types of work such as site claims preparation and management, evaluation and defence, settlement negotiations and mediations.

So please contact me if you believe I could be of help.

Disputes are a stressful time for everyone involved and my philosophy has always been to practice dispute avoidance before dispute resolution. Some advice on avoiding disputes is on this website.

Sadly, not every dispute can be avoided and for those of you that need to know about the available processes to resolve a construction dispute, please use the links on this page to find out more.

My clients have included Private Developers, Government Authorities, Joint Ventures, Law Firms, Main Contractors and Sub Contractors on projects in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Far East, Caribbean and North America. Project involvement varies from the small to the very large and complex billion dollar plus international projects.
