Arbitration is increasingly common in construction contracts. It is an alternative to court-based litigation, offering the same final determination but with the apparent advantages of privacy (arbitration proceedings are confidential) and flexibility (unlike the court rules, the arbitration process can be easily tailored to suit the parties’ needs).
'I have been working with Ruth and the Team for a number of years on various complex issues. They always go the extra mile to support and understand the commercial reality of situations providing detailed and well thought out guidance and legal advice every time. They are an invaluable support service when required and it is clear that they genuinely care about providing the best service possible to our business.'
'They’re commercially aware which sets them apart from other lawyers I have engaged in the past. It is not just about having the right legal answer: they have a genuine interest in understanding the projects we’re working on and what we want to achieve, which has been invaluable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Archor team.'
'I use Archor because it’s a one stop shop, I get made to feel important and like I’m a priority. They work quickly and allow me to get on with other things, and I trust their judgement and advice implicitly.
I don’t think I’ve ever had to chase you them on a legal matter, it’s normally the other way around which is another reason why I wouldn’t take our business elsewhere - I very much feel like we are a team working towards the same outcome.'
'I find Rory to be very approachable, with a can-do attitude. Which combined with his attention to detail, understanding of the potential risks and practical approach makes him a very valued and respected member of our consultant team.'
