Construction & Building Contract Dispute Lawyers

Our Construction lawyers routinely act in several construction disputes and have provided advice on many large property development disputes.

We understand the construction industry and have a depth of experience in resolving complex disputes.

Our lawyers are not construction contract lawyers. We don’t draft the contracts. Rather, we act for those in disputes in the pursuit of the resolution, which often comes in the form of payment.

We routinely act for builders and other trades, developers, security holders, property owners, and property companies.

We often enforce our clients’ rights under the Construction Contract Act.

Our Expertise

At Norling Law, our experts have an in-depth understanding of the Building Act, Construction Contracts Act, Arbitration Act, and the Building Code.

Where necessary, we work with various leading expert witnesses in the construction industry, including building surveyors, Council liability experts, structural, façade, fire, acoustic, and geotechnical engineers, quantity surveyors, programming experts, and valuation experts.

Our expertise and knowledge of the industry give our clients are leading-edge when resolving disputes.

Construction Contracts Act Adjudications

The Construction Contracts Act adjudication process provides a relatively quick method of resolving construction contract disputes.

Whether acting for property owners or contractors we understand the impact of presenting quality evidence and legal submissions to support the adjudication claim or response.

We ensure that our clients obtain the best result by putting their best foot forward in this process.


Arbitration is a popular dispute resolution alternative to the Court process. It provides more confidentiality than Court proceedings. These takes less time, and enables the parties to choose an arbitrator with specialist expertise.

We are familiar with the arbitration process and navigate this process with a high standard of advocacy.
