Despite best efforts, there are many issues within the building process and with property maintenance where disagreements do occur.

We are able to apply knowledge and experience in a dispute situation, in order to help stakeholders understand issues of disagreement in property matters, and to thereby reach a sound and just settlement.

We can respond at any time in the process, to advise clients, solicitors, Courts and their other advisors/insurers clearly and plainly.

“I came to Andy Laurie at the end of 2012 for an independent expert witness valuation of the work of a previous contractor who had gone bankrupt halfway through a project. He demonstrated a good knowledge about the costs of residential conversion work and was able to produce a comprehensive valuation in a timely manner.

“I therefore retained Andy to act as QS during the retender process and the contract to finish the project that followed. His attention to detail was exceptional and he demonstrated superb negotiation and cost control skills throughout the project. I would recommend Andy to anyone, especially those looking for a QS on a complex or specialised project.”
