Hardwicke continues to respond the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation and to ensure that we do all we can to keep our people, clients, friends and families safe.  It is now imperative that we do all we can to limit physical contact for the time being and therefore our working premises at Hardwicke Building in Lincoln’s Inn is closed.  However, Hardwicke remains open for business, in as normal a way as we can make it.  Barristers, practice managers and the rest of our staff team are working remotely and making good use of technology to reach out.

You can call us on +44 (0)20 7242 2523. Our normal telephone system is still operating and our usual friendly team is available to help.

We have a specific Covid-19 Resources section to assist with the specific issues which the coronavirus pandemic is causing across all sections of society and business.  For ease, see a summary page of all contacts during this unusual time.

Home > ADR Hub > Adjudication



A large part of the Team’s practice revolves around adjudication business in the TCC, with its practitioners regularly instructed in the full array of construction matters now dealt with in the adjudication context.

Notable work in this area includes adjudications concerning a major oil leak at a hospital facility, the construction of the National Assembly for Wales, works to HS1, a multi-million-pound delay and disruption final account matter arising out of infrastructure works at Canary Wharf, a high value claim against structural engineers in relation to a major care home project, a consulting engineering dispute over the design and construction of a landmark site on the outskirts of London, and numerous payment dispute adjudications.

Equally, and in recognition of the Team’s expertise in this area, its practitioners are regularly engaged as adjudicators in their own right. See the list of adjudicators.

Given the fast moving nature of this area of law, the Hardwicke Construction Team regularly provides adjudication day seminars to pool experience and keep abreast of recent developments in the adjudication context.

Hardwicke has earned a reputation as a commercial and forward thinking set that understands the financial demands of construction litigation. As such, its market leading Fixed Fee Adjudication Scheme provides a one-stop-shop for contractors, employers and other members of the construction industry who require a tailored adjudication service from commencement to enforcement.
