Extensive experience when you need it most.
A common claim between parties to construction and infrastructure projects is the recovery of an extension of time and/or compensation for the additional time spent and the resources used to complete the project whether due to delay or disruption. Where those claims cannot be resolved pursuant to non-adversarial contractual mechanisms, arbitration or litigation may be necessary.
Arbitrating or litigating time related claims typically requires an expert (a specialist in the subject) to give opinion evidence in the proceeding. King Planning is a leading provider of expert witness opinion evidence in this area.
