Contract and Engineering Disputes


Finding solutions in complicated environmnets.

All businesses run on agreements between parties, whether for the supply of tea and coffee for the office, the manufacture of parts for a machine, the installation of computer software or the demolition or construction of buildings. Without contracts the business world would fail to function.

One of the unfortunate consequences is that sometimes one party does not perform as the other party thinks they should. This is where we come in. We have assisted many companies to resolve these disputes.

Some real world examples of how the team at Short Richardson & Forth have assisted include:

  • Acting for a contractor in a dispute over the laying of 22km of ducting.
  • Acting for a party contracted to disassemble an oil refinery.
  • Acting for a software company in relation to the supply of bespoke software to the oil industry.
  • Acting for a company in a claim against contractors for failing to properly install drainage to their unit.

Whatever the scale or nature of the dispute, our team will work with you to achieve the best outcome possible for your individual circumstances.
