Client Support Contract
The purpose of this contract?
The support of our Clients’ commercial interests. Offering a ‘Support Contract’ is the next step in supporting our Clients with their commercial issues, dispute avoidance and dispute management. We have used our extensive experience to formulate two Client Support Contracts which we believe will provide your business with a sense of reassurance on commercial issues.
Why enter a contract?
Never has the pressure to minimise your risk and maximise your commercial opportunities been greater. Whilst the Construction Industry is showing signs of recovery, it is still arguably facing its toughest time in a generation.
Now is the time to ensure that you are protected and commercially prepared. Unprecedented recession, a faltering housing market, reduced public sector spending and limited funding opportunities have reduced the number of projects underway. It’s hardly surprising that in the current climate, building contract and appointment terms are being carefully negotiated, guarantees tightened, warranties extended.
Whether you are a Developer, Employer, Contractor, Sub-Contractor, Consultant or Lender, the prospect of a dispute at best means the loss of valuable time and money. At worse, it could threaten the future of your business.
What are the benefits?
Our team invests the time to get to know the commercial side of your business so that our advice matches your needs and your approach. Getting contracts right from the start of a project can help to avoid a costly dispute later on. However if a dispute becomes unavoidable, we’ll do our utmost to get the result you need.

Is this just another Insurance?
No, this is more of a partnership. It is a peace of mind that your business has immediate access to expert commercial consultants that can advise you throughout the whole construction process, from initial enquiry through to Final account, and if a dispute becomes unavoidable, the partnership could put you in a stronger position to promote or defend such an occurrence.
