Mark Pritchard is a construction litigation specialist with over 15 years' experience in high profile and complex dispute resolution.
Mark is a solicitor in the construction department. He provides practical and cost-effective advice to members of the construction industry on risk during the lifespan of a project, from initial procurement to the settlement of disputes during the project and after completion.
In addition to his experience in real time dispute resolution, Mark has conducted complex litigation in the Technology and Construction Court, Administrative Court, and Court of Appeal and is familiar with both the enforcement of adjudication decisions and the use of injunctive relief. He is equally at home in court or alternative dispute resolution.
More recently, Mark has been engaged by one of the country's leading house-builders to provide advice in the context of fire safety reviews of over 800 developments comprising over 2000 buildings. This has given him substantial, in-depth experience of dealing with the full gamut of external wall issues and resulting litigation; advising Plc Board members on risk at asset class level, as well as on a building by building basis.
In addition to his dispute avoidance and resolution practice, Mark assists clients with their construction documentation and is familiar with all of the standard forms. Through 2020 and 2021, during the pandemic, he also delivered CPD training via Zoom to the architects' profession.
