Contract Administration


Our firm understands the natural link between contract administration and the danger for disputes to arise. We know how important it is to give day-to-day support to our clients in contract administration issues, preventing them from growing into costly disputes.

Our lawyers are well-versed in advising on situations where an owner and a contractor disagree. Whether the disagreement arises from contract interpretation, entitlement to an extension of time or steps taken by one party, we help defuse the matter with quick and reliable advice and assistance. This can take the form of advice on the basic issue in question, drafting or review of correspondence or advice on positioning for the best outcome should a full dispute be unavoidable. Our lawyers are highly experienced in advising on issues arising out of:

  • Valuation of Work
  • Change Orders
  • Defects
  • Giving Notices
  • Performance Testing
  • Extensions of Time
  • Money Claims for Prolongation and Disruption
  • Dispute Avoidance and Pre-Dispute Strategies

Across our domestic and international offices, our construction team regularly advise clients on such issues, and are quick to provide practical answers on protecting our clients' interests at all stages.
