Testimonials

As a company we rarely have disputes or need to engage lawyers, so when we were faced with a serious challenge from a major contractor simply refusing to honour its contracts we needed to move quickly to protect our position and recover our entitlements. Willis Consultancy provided an in-house style of resource giving us the expertise at our fingertips to plan our response to the challenge. Having ownership of the dispute and the agility of an in house structure made us confident that we could win, which we did, despite the contractor using major law firms. The in-house model was a great solution providing great results at lower cost. I would certainly recommend using Willis Consultancy to anyone faced with the challenge of dealing with disputes”

Commercial Director Electrical Contractor

I have known Tim for many years and have received good advice, so when Tim set up Willis Consultancy I was very happy to use their services. In the past when a dispute arose it was very much a case of leaving it to the lawyers but now with adjudication and the assistance of Willis Consultancy we deal with disputes ourselves. We might be faced with lawyers on the other side but we have taken advice from Tim and when we have had to adjudicate we have won. It is of great satisfaction to me and our team when we win and have control over the process. We are much more involved than if we had just left it to the lawyers. The other party and the adjudicator is dealing with us. I would recommend Willis Consultancy and their way of working to anyone. It is cost effective, gets results and puts you in control.

Disputes Civils contractor

We are a growing business moving into new areas of work and expanding. The demands of tendering on many contracts and frameworks can at times stretch the team or take them into areas or commercial structures which are new to them. Willis Consultancy has broad expertise in contract review and risk management and so if we are stretched or dealing with the unexpected we can call on them. A great advantage is being able to sort the real opportunities from the onerous or unrealistic ones quickly and to be able to concentrate on winning work that will be profitable and right for the company at this crucial period of growth.

We are a multidisciplinary built environment consultancy with many businesses in the group. The demands on the legal and risk team can be extensive and businesses in the group sometimes need support with training or with issues that arise on projects. We work with Willis Consultancy as an additional resource to our legal / risks team and to provide training. We have worked with Tim for many years dealing with disputes in adjudication, arbitration and working with Tim as a lawyer in litigation. We also use Willis Consultancy to provide advice and support and training on contract and commercial issues for the business. I would recommend Willis Consultancy for their seamless integration with our business needs and good commercial advice.

    CLC guidance on the effects of Covid under NEC 4 Contracts ECC A and B states that the cost of homeworking is not recoverable as Defined Cost. This ignores clause 16.3 which allows the Working Areas to be added to. Homeworking would meet the contract test. http://Cost.es

    As factors combine to impact on the supply of plant, labour and materials, projects will suffer delay. The NEC4 programming procedures help parties manage those risks and agree adjustments prospectively to prevent disputes. See how. Users group workshop http://ow.ly/txtK50FEmyl
