Chambers’ recognised speciality is in disputes which require a detailed technical understanding of how things work and why it is that they go wrong. The factual complexities of these disputes are frequently matched by the complexity of the legal framework in which they arise. The ability to unpick the issues and find a clear way through is what sets members apart.

The skills which they have acquired as a result of their speciality mean that members’ expertise is in demand in assisting with disputes across a range of industry sectors, most notably construction and engineering, transport, social infrastructure (schools, hospitals), oil and gas, renewable energy, shipbuilding and offshore construction, water/sanitation and IT and telecommunications.
