Construction specific legal advice you can depend on
Many of our clients depend on our in-depth understanding of the construction industry to navigate this highly regulated sector.

Keep your construction projects on track
Prettys has experience in working for a wide range of construction-related clients on a variety of projects. Our solicitors can quickly understand your objectives and the nuances of a given project and take appropriate and measured action in the interest of your business. Our supportive solicitors can review, amend and negotiate contractual documents and provide ad-hoc support and training to your team.
Where there are early signs of a potential dispute that threatens to derail a project, the Prettys team can intervene to help avoid a dispute or bring forth alternative dispute resolution options. They can review and assess the situation and give timely and objective advice tailored to your business.
Supporting SME contractors: Fixed Price Construction Contracts
Prettys Solicitors understand uncertainty around contract terms is a prevalent cause of disputes on construction projects. With small and medium size contractors (SMEs) in mind, Prettys has created an accessible and cost-effective range of Fixed Price Construction Contracts (FPCCs) that are designed to be universally applicable and appropriate for use on a wide variety of projects. Once purchased they can be used as many times as required.
The FPCCs include a sub-contract and consultant agreement, both of which can be amended to suit your specific project needs. The FPCCs can also be purchased individually or as a set, and either on a one-off or subscription basis.
