A number of lawyers within the Construction and Engineering team specialise in acting for businesses that operate in the supply chain.

We provide clear and practical legal advice on the issues that affect this part of the construction industry. We work hard to secure the best possible solution for our clients.

Our expertise is in helping businesses that operate in the supply chain in relation to:

  • claims for the recovery of unpaid stage/interim payments
  • claims for the recovery of unpaid final payments
  • claims for the recovery of unpaid retention monies.

The team also provides advice in relation to claims for:

  • extensions of time
  • loss and expense
  • variations
  • defects

In addition to the above, we have the expertise to ensure the terms of business under which your business operates are consistent with the law, appropriate for your business needs and as favourable as possible.

Our supply chain team is led by Josh Ripman. The leading independent client directory, Legal 500, described him as "extremely knowledgeable, helpful and always available to explore all avenues".
