Support for you

Acting for Sub-Contractors

We offer both contentious and non-contentious services to building contractors, always aiming to work in a collaborative and non-confrontational way to maintain the positive working relationships you've worked hard to build.

We truly appreciate that no-one in the construction sector wants to appear to be “contractual” but we equally understand that you want to protect your own business. Should things escalate, we can support you in a discreet and sensitive manner. 



This applies equally to negotiations at the outset, and resolving disputes along the way.  Whilst allegations of defects are usually referred to your insurer, we specialise in advising sub-contractors in respect of delay claims and final account disputes. 

In particular, we can:

  • Review sub-contracts and collateral warranties that you intend to enter (including JCT, NEC3, NEC4 and bespoke documents), reporting on the changes we recommend you seek
  • Negotiate directly on your behalf or provide you with the information and knowledge to conduct negotiations yourself
  • Prepare standard terms and conditions for your business
  • Advise in respect of potential disputes at any time during the project or after practical completion
