Guildhall Chambers offer expertise across the full range of technology and construction disputes.

Our barristers expertise is not limited to the traditional construction or information technology disputes frequently associated with the Technology & Construction Court (TCC), but includes a particular strength in Professional Negligence claims against construction and technology professionals.

Many of our barristers are qualified arbitrators, adjudicators and mediators and can be instructed to determine or facilitate the determination of these disputes. We also accept instructions for expert determination work.
