Client Testimonials

“David was key member of the claims team at Nam Cheong Station with a thorough understanding of the technical issues affecting the works. He worked closely with the client such that a fair assessment of the claims was made to the satisfaction of both parties”
Rohit Patel

Engineering Manager, Nam Cheong Station, Balfour Beatty

“I worked with Contract Disputes Ltd on a major arbitration concerning a major piece of transport infrastructure in Hong Kong.  Contract Disputes produced the claims documents and assisted with support during the arbitration.  Although the issues in dispute were highly complex, the claims documents were clear, well-structured and easy to follow.  The extensive engineering experience of the Contract Dispute’s team is a real asset.  I would recommend David Feehan and his team for civil engineering claims.”
Nick Longley

Partner, Holman Fenwick Willan

“David managed a team undertaking the preparation of substantial, complex claims on a large infrastructure project. He is extremely thorough in his work and has the ability to present a claim and argue the position with conviction and maturity.”
Hugh Boyd

Head of Joint Venture Board, Stonecutters Bridge

“I have worked with Contract Dispute on several major projects recently. Most of our work together has been on large-scale mediations, in respect of which David and his experienced team have been extremely effective. They have a rare gift for preparing, distilling, and presenting complex claims to the level needed to bring about a settlement without resort to arbitration.”

“Leighton China State Joint Venture engaged Contract Dispute in the early stages of the MTR Contract 1123 – SCL Exhibition Station to help manage contractual issues on the project. The contract was undertaken on a target cost basis.
CDC integrated seamlessly into the project team and provided over 5 years of excellent and reliable support and advice to both the operation and commercial teams. CDC’s strength lies in their ability to understand the technical, programming and commercial issues at hand and provide strong arguments to support the JV’s contractual position in respect of the diverse number of events which affected the project. CDC provided guidance and solutions as events unfolded which allowed the JV and the Client to collaboratively make decisions for the best interest and success of the project.
CDC’s input underpinned the JV’s overall contractual position for negotiating solutions with the Client and avoiding major disputes. I highly recommend CDC and would advocate their early involvement on a project in order to achieve maximum benefit.”

“David Feehan and his team have provided invaluable help to our long running arbitration.  User friendly and real team players, the dedication and responsiveness of the team is second to none.  In a highly complex matter where multiple teams of lawyers and experts were involved, David and his team were an indispensable bridge between the client and the legal team drawing upon their close attention to detail and solid engineering and programming expertise.”
