At WT, we know that the processes involved in resolving commercial disputes can be time consuming and expensive. We are conscious of the pressures that are faced by parties in a dispute and we work closely with our clients and their legal advisors to resolve disputes in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Our team of experts has been carefully selected on the basis of their experience, training and qualifications in relation to the construction, engineering and infrastructure industries. Their extensive experience brings a level of gravitas and confidence, which is demonstrated in the advice and service that they provide, whether in the form of impartial and well-drafted reports, presentation of expert evidence, participation in dispute resolution proceedings or in providing strategic commercial support directly to our clients.

We are often engaged as commercial advisors on complex and challenging projects and assist our clients to successfully manage risk and reduce the likelihood of issues escalating to the level of formal dispute. In the event that a dispute has arisen, we are well equipped to act as expert witness on a wide variety of matters in litigation, arbitration, adjudication and other alternative dispute resolution processes.

As an independent global firm, with a strong local presence and a highly regarded brand, our substantial resources ensure that our experts have the capacity and the availability to meet the demands and deadlines arising on live projects and in dispute resolution processes.

We provide sound, practical commercial advice, based on many years of industry experience. We provide expert opinion in respect of the cost of issues arising under construction, engineering and infrastructure contracts, including variations, prolongation, disruption and defect rectification works.
