Team at Roston Carlyle Rojas Lawyers specially Varun Gupta, Brendon McKenzie and Maisie Taylor are great professionals with competent and outstanding skills. From the first meeting with Varun Gupta, we got assured that we are with right people and they proved it. No doubt they are most recommendable team of professionals. Throughout the process they kept us updated and were available all the time for any questions or concerns. We will again contact them and recommend to my friends and network.

Mysa was completely competent from start to finish, she seamlessly guided us through the legal process and was very informative, no question was too small. The RCR Lawyers team was there with us from the beginning to the end and helped us achieve closure with a positive result and for that we are extremely grateful.

Upon meeting with Varun, I never doubted that he’s certainly a brilliant solicitor and true enough, with all the things he did for us, he really surpassed our high expectations. He is very responsive in everything and even to a small detail. He is very professional that he would give an honest advice and direct answers to all our questions and enqueries. He never left us especially in a critical situations (yes, there were a lot of circumstances but Varun fixed them for us) but actually, he stayed with us up to the last minute of the day or until to settle everything that we need to do. Thank you Varun for helping us to buy our first home!!!

My partner and I went through these guys for a complicated partner visa case after being referred from a lawyer friend. After being told by other lawyers that it was either easy or impossible, these guys told it like it was, realistic (they also had the same fees as the others). Peter and Shanalee were with us the whole way to provide guidance and 2.5 years later we are happy to receive the news that the partner visa has been granted.Thank you for all of your hard work guys.All the best.

Common Types of Construction Disputes

Construction disputes can arise for various reasons:

  1. Delay Claims: Projects experiencing delays because of unforeseen events or mismanagement often spark debates over responsibility and how compensation should be handled. Site conditions, such as unexpected soil problems or environmental issues, typically lead to these disputes.
  2. Defective Work or Materials: Disputes may surface concerning the quality of the work performed or the need to rectify defects in the construction.
  3. Contractual Disagreements: Disputes often occur when construction contracts lack clear or complete details, typically outlining project scope, timelines, responsibilities, and payment terms.
  4. Regulatory Compliance: It’s crucial to adhere to local building codes and regulations. Disagreements can arise when projects fail to meet these standards.
  5. Design Changes: Project design or specifications alterations can lead to debates about additional costs and project timelines.
  6. Payment Disputes: Payment-related issues, such as delays, non-payment, or disagreements over change orders, can escalate into disputes.

Different disputes need different strategies to be resolved. The approach should be customised to fit the project and the people involved.

Customised Strategies for Dispute Resolution

Protecting your interests is crucial when working on a construction project.

Logging in detailed records of project communication, contracts, payments, delays, and changes can be a lifesaver in a dispute resolution process. 

Our expert construction lawyers can provide valuable legal advice and effective representation. In addition, exploring alternative dispute resolution mechanisms like mediation or arbitration can be quicker and more cost-effective than traditional litigation

Finally, reviewing your insurance coverage for construction-related disputes can help mitigate the financial risks associated with a dispute. 

Following these steps can prepare you for the worst case scenario and safeguard your interests.

Specialised Guidance in Contractual Disputes

Construction projects are complex and involve many parties, and it’s important to have clear contracts that outline everyone’s responsibilities.

Unfortunately, sometimes disputes arise because of misunderstandings or disagreements about these contracts. Our legal team helps you with complex contracts and dispute resolution procedures.

We use negotiation and other legal tactics to ensure everyone’s rights are respected, and issues are resolved quickly and efficiently.

And if disputes persist, we can help you find fair and informed resolutions through our expert determination services.

Navigating Payment and Delay Claims

Disputes related to payment and delays are some of the biggest challenges construction projects face. 

We can assist you if you are the owner, contractor, or supplier.

We can help you assert or defend claims made by others. We analyse project timelines, work quality, and financial transactions to create a legal strategy that suits your situation. 

Our team has extensive knowledge of construction regulations, including Security of Payment Acts, and is well-versed in project management.

When Litigation is the Only Option

Although we always aim to resolve construction disputes outside court, it is sometimes impossible.

In those cases, our skilled litigators are ready to support and represent you throughout the court process.

We will guide you from the beginning of the court proceedings to settlement negotiations and trial.

We aim to achieve the best possible legal and financial outcome for you.
