Who We Are

Construction projects are typically long-term commitments, featuring high-levels of uncertainty and complexity. It is often impossible to resolve every detail or foresee every problem. This makes the industry one of the most conflict-prone. When disagreements do arise, they are costly and disruptive to everyone involved.

Founded in 2012 and operating internationally from our London base, Sense Studio, a part of J.S. Held, provides an extensive range of dispute avoidance, expert and resolution services to the construction industry and legal profession. Our services frequently help clients avoid prolonged legal proceedings, or help to ensure a timely resolution of a dispute.

In March of 2021, Sense Studio joined J.S. Held, expanding the firm’s resources and suite of services. For more information about J.S. Held, visit JSHELD.com
