The strength in depth of our Construction & Engineering and Energy practices means that we are extremely well placed to deal with PFI and public-contract disputes.

Our expertise and experience encompass all types of PFI and PPP projects and we are specialists in service and infrastructure projects of a particularly complex nature. We are involved with both the construction and delivery stage of assets and facilities arising from PFI and PPP projects and with issues that can arise throughout their long-term operation and management.

Our PFI and PPP focus extends beyond dispute resolution, under the frequently bespoke dispute resolution provisions of PFI and PPP contracts, to dispute avoidance and dispute management – helping our clients to achieve commercially sensible outcomes without the need for arbitration or litigation. We specialise in all manner of disputes including those involving:

  • Bridges
  • Hospitals
  • Leisure facilities
  • Power plants
  • Road building
  • Schools
  • Tunnels
  • Transport systems
  • Waste to energy plants
  • Water treatment plants
