How can Dunn Right Legal’s construction litigation lawyers support you?

Amid the COVID construction boom and looming construction liquidity crisis, disputes between contractors, builders, and homeowners are becoming more frequent.

Due to the building and construction industry’s nuanced, vulnerable and high-risk nature, disputes occur. They can often be costly and cause further delays to your project. When disputes happen it’s critical to act quickly and get advice from an expert in the field.

Building disputes are often caused by issues relating to:
● Variations
● Payments
● Timelines
● Work quality concerns

Dunn Right Legal helps clients improvise and adapt to overcome the obstacles and chaos that disputes can create.

We do this by taking swift strategic action to protect, defend or enforce your rights. We can assist you in resolving your dispute through a variety of means including through negotiations, dispute resolution processes such as arbitration or litigation.


A project’s performance often rests on the scope and validity of the contract documentation. Having seen the consequences of poorly drafted contracts play out in Court time and time again, Desley is an expert in identifying contract issues before they blow out.

Whether you have concerns about a draft commercial contract or need to invoke a feature of a contract, you should seek legal advice to protect your position.


Whether you’re at the pre-contract stage or have commenced work on a project where a dispute arises, negotiation is a powerful tool.

It can achieve a more commercial outcome, diffuse heated disagreements, limit damages and liability, and avoid litigation.

Dispute Resolution

Litigation can also be avoided through dispute resolution. There are several dispute resolution processes including arbitration and adjudication.

Each should be considered individually and in light of the circumstances specific to the case. Effective dispute resolution can save business relationships and avoid stressful, costly, and lengthy litigation.

Defective Building Work

Defective building work claims are one of the most common causes of litigation. They can have a flow-on effect, causing damage to the project in other areas.

In some cases, home warranty insurance or QBCC might be able to rectify the issue, but in other circumstances you may need to seek assistance from a Tribunal or Court to get the appropriate remedy.
