Typical GCA recent cases include:

  • Construction disputes

For the majority of our clients we offer a three stages approach:

1] Preliminary Case Appraisal
2] Detailed Expert Witness Reports / Services

Our extensive experience of the entire arbitration process is invaluable in the preparation and presentation of cases, responses to claim submissions and in adjudication, conciliation, arbitration and litigation processes.
