Payment Notices

It is common for the construction industry to operate around payment issues; usually, the indifference to pay is the disputed source. We see the early markers for payment disputes and can put working practices or even regular negotiations to avoid the trap of not being paid.

Forensic Analysis

Our forensic accounting and commercial damages team advises clients on complex contentious matters and are instructed on disputes requiring the quantification of lost profits arising from breach of contracts and warranties, valuations resulting from expropriation and shareholder disputes, and quantification of damages in respect of class actions, professional negligence, insurance claims and post-acquisition disputes.

Adjudicators fees capped at £2000…the end of excessive charging

No Comments

RICS set lower fee for construction adjudication service in relation to claims of £50,000 or less, with fixed Adjudicator’s fees being pulled back into line.
