This Practice Note, produced in partnership with Gurbinder Grewal, Ian Fox and Michael Wright of Dentons UK and Middle East LLP, gives guidance on insolvency in the construction industry. It considers the parties to a construction project, common procurement methods and key contract documents, all of which can be relevant to consider when advising a client that is a party to a construction contract where the other party is in financial difficulties. It also covers contractual protections to look out for and considers steps that can be taken, such as the contractual right to terminate where a contractor or employer has become insolvent. This Practice Note considers disputes, which often arise where one party is in financial difficulty, and the ability of parties to use the statutory or contractual right to adjudicate to resolve disputes in the context of a company in liquidation or administration.
