Flint Bishop Solicitors are pleased to bring to the market a brand new offer for its construction audience.
Led by Chambers and Partners Leading Construction Lawyer, Andrew Perry, the department is pleased to offer a no-win-no-fee adjudication service to companies faced with construction and engineering disputes.
The service is principally directed at project cash-flow and final payment recovery as a large amount of debt is written off every year in the construction industry, with many businesses deciding not to refer their disputes to adjudication if the dispute is a relatively low value, coupled with irrecoverable legal fees.
This new service is branded under a ‘Damaged Based Agreement’ and anyone requiring more information on this or with a legal concern are encouraged to get in touch with Andrew Perry or a member of his team on 01332 226 488.
Andrew Perry, Partner and Head of Construction & Engineering comments “This new offering to our construction audience is aimed at supporting the industry with its cash-flow/cash recovery by offering a no-win-no-fee arrangement for adjudications.
I regularly see businesses writing off significant sums of money, either through interim payments or final accounts, which would otherwise be recoverable via adjudication but due to the irrecoverable nature of legal costs in adjudications, and businesses not having enough time to run the adjudications themselves, they simply get written off – businesses are giving away their hard earned money. With a no-win-no-fee adjudication arrangement, we aim to help businesses recover what they are due by taking the adjudication burden away from the business and sharing the risk and reward of the adjudicator’s decision. We are building on our expertise both in size and volume across the region and see this as the ultimate proof of our ability to bring a successful adjudication because ‘we are only paid if you win’.”
