Contracting Forms Advice and Risk Assessment
- Standard Form Agreements (NEC, FIDIC, JBCC, GCC, iChemE, JCT)
- Work-package arrangements
- Bespoke contractual arrangements in multi-jurisdictional projects
- Procurement reviews
- Risk assessment
When commencing any construction project, the agreement between the parties will be the foundation of their legal relationship. If this agreement is not drafted and understood correctly, it may very well mean the end of the relationship and result in major damages for the parties involved.
These agreements may vary from a basic Service Level Agreement to FIDIC-, NEC- and JBCC agreements. Theses agreements should only be signed once proper advice has been obtained and consensus is reached between the parties.
