With strong experience in drafting diverse contractual models, from traditional to more innovative solutions, such as cost-plus-fee contracts, the Firm is able to swiftly support clients in identifying the best contractual strategy related to the characteristics of the operation, as well as the scope of services to be provided (including technical services and Operation & Maintenance services).
Our lawyers also draft prodromal or ancillary legal documents to contracts (such as letters of intent, bank and insurance guarantees), working alongside consultants to identify the most appropriate contract regulations with regard to insurance policies. They also support the client in the review of design documents in order to ensure all-round support in the preparation of the contract and the coherence between the design and the contract.
Clients can also rely on constant, timely and highly specialised support in all phases of the contract execution. We interact on a daily basis with all stakeholders, professional technicians and other lawyers involved and assist in the drafting of worksite minutes, additional and amending deeds to the contract and variation reports, as well as in the management of correspondence with the contractor, reservations of rights and relations with any financing institutions or guarantors, also providing support in any pre-litigation phase.
To ensure those aims, the Firm evaluates both complex legal matters, including critical issues related to price increases as a result of ongoing pandemic, war and inflationary events, and equally complex technical issues, such as testing, variations during the works and the use of BIM or BREAAD methodologies.
