Fixed fee certainty for the straight-to-point legal advice needed to get the best result possible

COVID-19 has affected every sector of business, not least the construction sector. The delay and then recommencement of construction projects is fraught with difficulties and we know this is going to give rise to serious differences between Employer and Contractor (and Contractor/Sub-Contractor), not least of which being disputed applications for extensions of time, loss and expense or potentially claims for liquidated damages.

Contracts may even have been inadvertently breached already due to the cessation of works. We are here to help the transition go as smoothly as possible by giving you advice about your legal position under your contract/the legislation and make sure you exercise the correct rights at the right time, ensuring a good bargaining position is maintained.COVID-19 has affected every sector of business, not least the construction sector.

Our Dispute Resolution Team has many years’ experience dealing with construction disputes. We have acted for construction businesses across Scotland and elsewhere in the UK and have a strong-track record of success. We are well-placed to assist and hope to provide you with a little certainty in an uncertain climate. That’s why our initial advice package is available for a fixed fee of £995 + VAT. The package includes a detailed review of your contract and other relevant documents and producing an advice note setting out your legal position and advising on what steps you should consider taking to protect your position as effectively as possible and minimising the risk of much more significant costs arising later down the line.

Some of the main areas we can advise on are:

  • General contractual compliance (SBCC, JCT, NEC3 etc)
  • Construction legislation
  • Extensions of time
  • Suspension of works
  • Payment certificates/applications
  • Payment certificates/applications
  • Termination
  • Adjudication / Litigation / Arbitration

Get in touch today by emailing a brief description of your situation to disputes@stronachs.com and requesting a call back. One of our advisors will get in touch with you promptly to have a no-obligation chat. If you then wish to proceed with our advice package, we’ll do the rest.
