Despite the prevalence of standard construction contracts, such as NEC and JCT, construction professionals are increasingly encountering amended or bespoke contracts. Even a change in a single term could mean a significant deviation from a standard construction contract, carrying a serious amount of risk and liability. If not thoroughly vetted, this could result in damaging and costly legal processes or alternative dispute resolution procedures.
Davies and Davies will review your construction contract and identify clauses of potential concern. We will give you a clear understanding of the non-standard terms in your contract and advise on a suitable course of action, whether that means negotiating out of risks, or accepting them with a greater confidence in how to manage them accordingly. We’ll work to protect your interests and optimise your contractual entitlements, helping to prevent damage and costs.
