Building & Construction Lawyer
We Protect Your Downside
A building or construction project goes beyond just timber, steel, bricks and mortar. It often involves the multi-layering of many laws, such as building & construction law, tort (negligence) law, contract law and other statutory provisions.
Having a specialised legal team with a deep understanding of the industry can give you confidence that your downside is protected every step of the way.
As lawyers specialising in Building & Construction Law, we understand the struggles you face as a contractor.
Not Receiving Payment from Your Main Contractor?
Cash flow is king. If you are a contractor or sub-contractor, we understand that you are heavily reliant on cash flow to sustain your business operations and having delayed payments could potentially become a make-or-break situation for your business.
As your legal representative, we act in the best interests of your business to protect it from potential bad debt. The Security of Payment Act (a.k.a SOPA) is a common and effective way to recover the debt owed to you, but solutions don’t stop there. Our legal experts review each case uniquely and will take a multi-pronged approach to come up with cost-effective strategies.
Defects are regular occurrences in the building and construction industry, and many contractors and sub-contractors often find themselves served with defect claims. Certain defects may not be your responsibility to bear, and fingers are being pointed around with seemingly no conclusion. Tactful legal approaches have served many of our clients in achieving satisfactory resolutions to their disputes.
It is common in the building and construction industry for disputes to happen over late project completion. Assessment for liquidated damages can be a complex and difficult process, especially for smaller companies. Having a liquidated damages clause is not “the end of the story”.
When events like that happen, we will take a wide-angle and multi-pronged approach to your case to resolve or ease such conflict through cost-effective strategies for managing the damages, sometimes even disputing on liability for liquidated damages in the first place.
