Our Energy Disputes Guide highlights the importance of effective contract management in helping to avoid disputes in construction contracts. The Guide highlights that it is vital to:

• Read, understand and properly apply the payment mechanisms in the agreement. 
• Familiarise yourself with the agreement's mechanism for raising and responding to claims for additional time or money. 
• Understand and familiarise yourself with the dispute resolution mechanisms in the agreement. In particular, if you are in receipt of a notice of adjudication, act promptly; a failure to respond within the timeframes may result in an adverse and binding decision against you.
