Construction Law Advice

Construction and engineering companies should be mindful of the legal pitfalls that can occur during the construction process.

Else’s specialist construction solicitors in Burton upon Trent, can minimise legal risks while the building phase is on-going.

Issues can occur if on-site staff are not remaining vigilant, if subcontractors are complaining, or if there are accounting errors. Problems with records, the site diary, notices, photographs, and orders and invoices can also become a legal issue.

Else can provide you with terms and conditions to prevent problems from happening. If an issue has already begun we can develop a bespoke strategy to tackle problems swiftly and thoroughly.

In the complicated world of construction, a professional legal partner with astute commercial knowledge is a major advantage. Our solicitors understand the financial and strategic challenges of the sector and can work successfully with project managers, architects, engineers, surveyors, designers and building contractors.
