How we can help
If your business needs to engage the services of an engineer for a development project, you will want a contract that documents what you want, when you want it and how you will pay for it.

Friendly yet direct, our team is passionate about every case we take on, and we believe the entire process requires constant communication. We will therefore guide you through the technicalities involved, offering expert advice from start to finish.
Why legal help is important
The New Engineering Contract (NEC) is a series of contracts designed to manage any project from start to finish. They are designed to be jargon free with a logical and straightforward structure. Their purpose was to replace the typical contracts that were being used that often led to disputes and disagreements
The NEC aims to be a balance between looking after the interests of the client whilst protecting the profit that is due to the contractor.
The other key characteristics of these contracts is that they are intended to be a suite of end to end project management focused contracts that define legal relationships and empower users to deliver projects:
- On time
- On budget
- To the highest standards.
- The contracts will cover works, services and supply
