The Contract our clients choose or agree to sign creates a legally binding agreement by which rights and/or obligations are acquired or granted.
We advise our clients, whether a project owner, main contractor, subcontractor or professional consultant on the choice of contract which provide the best risk allocation by considering documentation that suits the related industry best, practical constraints, available resources, regulatory requirements and contract administration obligations.
Where a Standard Form of Contract (FIDIC, IChemE, Orgalime model forms etc.) has been chosen for use, we can draft tailored amendments, advise on the amendments provided by others or advise on the appropriateness of the selected contract.
We provide our clients with contract selection advice, training, tailored drafting of contract and letters of intent, contract interpretation and review of how their contract applies to them in respect of rights and obligations.
Our Services include;
- Pre-contract advice and contract negotiation
- Tailored drafting and review of all types of contracts
- Drafting and review of critical project correspondence
- Project Support and Dispute Avoidance
- Advice and dispute resolution in prolongation, disruption, delay and liquidated damages claims
- Advice and dispute resolution in construction variation claims
The aim for all construction projects is to complete on time and within budget. This rarely happens.
We specialise in dealing with claims relating to time and money and are highly experienced in these types of construction claims which most often include the contractor’s claims for loss and expense, extension of time and variations and the employer’s claims for delay and disruption, defects in the works and liquidated damages or claims against professionals for negligence.
