Edge Consult will provide you with contractual assistance and advice in unlocking and resolving your construction related problems.

Typically, this will be related to building contracts, for example, standard forms such as JCT and NEC, sometimes with significant amendments thereto or fully bespoke contract terms and conditions.

We regularly audit and review main contracts, sub-contracts and supply agreements, explaining to our clients the risks and obligations that may otherwise be missed or misunderstood.

We can provide not just contractual reviews but also practical assessments of the likely risk you may incur, often using RAG (Red/Amber/Green) ratings against matters of concern.

To this end, we can provide an explanation of each notable risk. This will be in terms of both probability and liability, enabling you to understand and make informed decisions when negotiating and/or entering into contract.

Where practical, we can also identify a mitigation strategy to ensure suitable procedures are in place to limit your exposure.

We regularly draft contractual letters for our clients to protect and advance their position.

Where a dispute on contract liabilities or obligations has arisen, Edge Consult can again provide you with both contractual and practical advice on the way forward.

We can assist you in contractual negotiations to limit your exposure to risks that may otherwise arise. Our objective is to minimise the chances of you becoming disadvantaged or ending up in a dispute and adjudication. However, where a dispute becomes unavoidable, our clients will gain from our in-depth construction and contractual knowledge, particularly in the area of adjudication.
