Construction litigation services

We support our clients in addressing disputes during engineering and construction projects

Because of their complexity and the involvement of the various stakeholders involved, capital projects are prone to disputes and claims, which are often resolved in complex judicial or arbitration contentions.

Deloitte has specialized knowledge and experience in the usual ways of resolving litigations. Courts, public and private investors, regulatory agencies, builders, lawyers, among others, rely on the strength of our brand and the highly technical qualification of our professionals to assist them in complex disputes in a clear, concise and objective manner.

How we can help

We operate in a multidisciplinary and functional way, with deep knowledge of the various sectors of activities. Our team of experts develops advanced, solid and consistent analyses – enhanced by the use of digital tools – in order to increase the credibility of our reports and recommendations. We count on the support of Deloitte's global experience to support our clients in all phases of litigation, arbitration or regulatory procedures.

Our main solutions are:

Preparation / Analysis of claims
Using the best market practices, Deloitte's Capital Projects team prepares and analyzes claims based on contractual documents to develop strategies that support the client to achieve the best value in agreement with the other party.

Conciliation / Technical mediation
Based on the most modern negotiation methods, high technical knowledge and extensive experience in capital project management, the Deloitte team acts as a mediator, considering its own independent analyses in the process. We have the support of law firms in these processes.

Technical support in arbitration / judicial proceedings
In many conflicts arising from construction contracts, arbitration and judicial proceedings go beyond the legal aspects, focusing on technical aspects such as: low productivity, competing schedule delays, critical path analysis, damage calculation based on contractual documents and the market. Our specialists use the most modern and robust techniques to show (or to argue) the damage caused and the causal link.

Dispute prevention and resolution committees (dispute boards)
Deloitte professionals, trained in the area of entrepreneurship, act in the resolution of conflicts as they arise, avoiding the interruption of the contract and controversies to turn into long demands.
