Atkinson Peck: Expert Advice and Dispute Resolution Services

Expert Advice / Dispute Resolution Services

Senior members of staff at Atkinson Peck Consulting Engineers are well placed to utilise their many year of experience and training in the field of Civil and Structural Engineering to provide expert advice on a wide range of legal disputes.

Our experience has been called upon to provide expert advice in a number of areas including structural failures, structural defect disputes, second opinions, insurance claims (including fire damaged buildings, flood damage, ground movement and subsidence/heave) and professional negligence etc. Such advice has been given as joint expert or for either claimant or defendant.

Our staff utilise their experience to review technical cases of varying degrees of complexity and present them in a clear and concise manner that the lay person can understand. Where possible we will endeavour to resolve disputes by negotiation and constructive dialogue rather than the more expensive formal dispute resolution processes. However, when a dispute extends to court proceedings, law requires that the service we provide remains impartial, with the overriding duty being to the court rather than the client. Where required any assigned work is carried out in a strictly confidential manner.

Where required our service includes arranging intrusive investigations to ascertain the cause of the defects followed by formulation and implementation of practical remedial measures to resolve the problem.
