Our philosophy is to step in to assess a situation before it becomes more costly to resolve. We take an honest, consultative approach and take time to understand how your company operates, then seek the most commercial and cost effective route towards avoidance or resolution.
Advice may be all we provide, or if the problem is more serious, then it can be dealt with professionally in stages. Early involvement allows our expertise to be used to focus on avoiding matters escalating into costly disputes.
Using our experience and knowledge of construction contracts, claims, forms of procurement, contracts and payments valuations, tenders and other technical & construction related issues, we can provide support to Insolvency Practitioners in their work with companies in distressed situations. Our support involves assessing the funds at risk in relation to:
• Debtors • Work in progress • Retentions • Form of Contract • Contract terms • Time • Entitlement to Loss and Expense • Damages • Disputes • Technical matters • Settlement of accounts
Support to Insolvency Practitioners is a specialist skill which requires a thorough understanding of contract forms such as JCT & NEC.
