Legal Support

If a project suffers from cost or time overrun, expert advice is often called for.

The experienced team of expert quantity surveyors and project managers at BHA provide a range of services to support you. We work with legal professionals and parties in dispute to help resolve and avoid conflict.

Experienced in supporting and working with legal teams, the Burke Hunter Adams experts will support you and help you to resolve your disputes with the minimum of fuss and cost. 

We are familiar with the role of the expert and our duties in relation to Part 35 expert reports / the principles of the Ikarian Reefer. With the BHA team, you can be sure of appropriate and independent advice.

Real world expertise

As practising construction professionals, the team brings up to date, real world experience and expertise to the resolution of construction disputes. BHA team members are not ‘career experts’, maintaining regular involvement with live projects. This ensures that advice and opinions are relevant and up to date.

Working closely with lawyers, the team understands and is sensitive to the specific requirements of working within a legal framework. This might be in the forensic analysis of loss and expense or provision of expert evidence in arbitration and litigation. We are very familiar with the role of experts in relation to CPR Part 35 evidence and duties to the court or tribunal.

Our Services

  • Advice and analysis of loss and expense claims.
  • Advising clients on quantum matters during mediations and adjudications.
  • Expert evidence on quantum matters in arbitration and litigation.
The most successful projects in this area are the disputes resolved without need for formal proceedings.

In relation to the quantum experts, both are experienced quantity surveyors with experience of litigation. I much preferred the approach of Mr Hunter which was pragmatic and down to earth.
