Dispute Resolution

Contractual claims, delay analysis and dispute resolution

With an established track record of success in the areas of claims management, delay analysis and dispute resolution, the QUALSURV Consulting team helps countless clients address and resolve contractual issues and disputes.

Our highly qualified consultants draw upon their negotiation and investigative skills to bring advice and guidance, consultancy services and practical support to any stage in the construction project process including:

Claims Management

Disputes can be time-consuming and often unpleasant to deal with. Taking advantage of a trusted third party to prepare or defend a claim allows the company to take a step back from the situation knowing their interests are being managed sensitively and professionally and that the claim will be resolved firmly and fairly.

QUALSURV provides negotiation and problem-solving expertise needed to take the stress out of the situation, as well as offering valuable and informed support.

In the first instance, we will provide an independent, honest and inexpensive appraisal of each case.


QUALSURV has significant knowledge of relevant legislative and legal aspects of adjudication, together with the necessary experience to manage all stages of the process on behalf of either the claimant or respondent.

QUALSURV supports its client’s from initial planning for an adjudication action to preparation of formal submissions and representation at hearings.

Whether working independently or as part of the client’s team, our track record of achieving favourable adjudication decisions is excellent.

Arbitration and Litigation

When complex problems need resolving by legal process a competent team providing legal and technical expertise is vital if the best possible outcome is to be achieved.

Working alongside legal representation, QUALSURV provides technical insight and forensic analysis of the events leading up to and during the dispute – both from a time and quantum perspective.

Our track record for supporting clients and their legal representatives through to favourable decisions is excellent.

With many years of experience both on construction sites and in formal proceedings, our consultants are able to bring their knowledge and communication skills to bear on your behalf.


The struggle to recover cash owed to an insolvent company requires detailed technical knowledge of contract and insolvency practices together with extensive experience of the relationships at all levels of the construction process.

QUALSURV’s track record speaks for itself. Our team has successfully recovered millions of pounds in contractual claims, retentions, insurance claims and related matters for insolvency practitioners and financial institutions.

Our approach is thorough, tenacious, effective and expedient.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Differences of opinion or interpretation are not uncommon in the construction industry – it is an inherent part of the complex projects undertaken. However, small issues can quickly spiral out of control and become costly problems to resolve.

Dealt with through mediation, the inconvenience and polarisation always associated with a dispute can be avoided. The hefty cost – not just legal expenses, but time, effort and resource too – can be avoided.
