contracts & claims

Turn the paperwork storm to your advantage.

In the development, construction, engineering and mining industries, you can make money by preparing and submitting your paperwork properly and on time.

Recognising that good paperwork is the key to success, Vincent Young established an in-house contract support and claims consultancy division of the practice in 2011.

In our experience, consultancies external to legal firms may not communicate properly or work efficiently with lawyers in complex legal and claim related matters. Our clients have the advantage of consultants who can, as circumstances demand, work independently of or, hand in glove with our lawyers.

Our consultants can work at our offices or at yours, supporting you in your day-to-day business. They can create simple contract administrative systems and train your staff to understand and manage contractual risk.

The technical industry grounding of our team gives our clients the edge over their competitors in all disputes and claims. When our consultants are involved, they become part of your business and deliver stronger commercial outcomes.

Make paperwork part of your toolkit, not your nightmare.
