£19m trade contract

Advising a sub-contractor in respect of a £19m trade contract in the City of London including risk profiling the contract and workshop on working within the contract terms in practice as it was a bespoke contract. Part of the purpose for this was so that the client was aware of the potential areas where disputes might arise during the project to enable them to be able to mitigate against them.

Contract and risk support

Acting for and working with in-house legal team of a global science and chemical company in connection with its projects to deliver its facilities in England and in Europe. This has included supporting the business units in choosing the most appropriate forms of contract and providing training on procurement and risk as necessary.

Termination of joint venture agreement

Advising a client in respect of its liabilities and ability to terminate a joint venture agreement regarding the removal of public telephone boxes throughout the UK. This involved a close interpretation of the agreement, collation of information from the client’s project manager and drafting a robust letter of termination. By understanding what the client wanted to achieve the termination was not challenged and therefore costly litigation was avoided.
