Construction contract risk management solutions

When it comes to procurement and construction contracts, proactive risk management is essential for protecting your interests and ensuring the success of your project. The details of construction contracts are often overlooked until a dispute emerges, leaving parties at risk of unexpected liabilities and financial repercussions. Accepting contract amendments or bespoke agreements without first understanding the transfer of risk frequently results in trouble.

At MJD Solicitors, we understand the importance of managing construction contract risks proactively. We can perform audits of your contractual processes, ensuring that risks are identified and mitigated effectively. Additionally, we can assist in drafting tailored documents to allocate risks appropriately to subcontractors and consultants, providing robust protection for our clients
