Construction and Engineering
In the construction world, which spans anything from the installation of a new kitchen to the building of the Olympic site, disputes readily arise, and quick effective solutions are needed, together with an understanding of the issues from a technical perspective.
Whether adjudication or arbitration is needed, a fast appraisal of what is often a large amount of documentation is called for.
The terms of the contract are the starting point, and in domestic situations it is often verbal, which creates its own problems. In bigger disputes it is necessary to establish who amongst the contractor, sub-contractor, architect and engineer is responsible for the owner’s loss.
We have the expertise and experience to help resolve all disputes in this area, and to do so as cost effectively as possible, because inevitably they can be document and time heavy, and therefore expensive to conclude.
We can also advise on the special tax regime for contractors and self-employed sub-contractors in the construction industry. Employees in the construction industry should be dealt with under the normal PAYE system. We have many years experience in dealing with employment status issues and so we are well placed to advise you on your status and your rights.
