Claims cost money, but our timely advice can reduce the risk of claims being made. Regular monthly surgeries, to discuss, advise and appraise, are a contributory factor to TQM. Should a claim arise, we provide an initial assessment before we undertake preparation, defence, evaluation and/or negotiation of either contractual or tortious claims, whether under standard forms or not. Advice is given on heads of claim, liquidated damages, extensions of time, disruption, loss of productivity, overheads, loss of profit, financing charges and expert evaluation of the potential risks associated therewith. Expert reports on these contentious areas as well as problems associated with payments, set-off, contra charges and claims can be prepared. Our trained arbitrators/mediators can act as third parties to assist in resolving disputes through mediation, conciliation or arbitration, resolving differences and preserving trading relationships.
