For September 2018: Al Bawardi Critchlow launches a free service offering construction law advice

Many companies and individuals are reluctant to consult lawyers when they need them because of concerns as to cost; there is a perception (often valid) that as soon as a solicitor is contacted, the meter starts to run. 

Yet that reluctance can lead to much greater expense being incurred later on, particularly in the construction industry. 

To help to resolve the problem, during the month of September 2018, our experienced team of construction law specialists will (subject to the terms below) offer an hour’s free legal advice. This offer covers all areas of construction law, both contractual and dispute related, so far as it is within Al Bawardi Critchlow’s expertise. 

An hour is sometimes enough to deal with relatively straightforward matters. Where more complex advice is needed, that period is generally sufficient to identify the issues and establish a strategy for resolving them.  It is also an opportunity for preliminary advice to be given concerning costs and risks.

Al Bawardi Critchlow is happy to entertain requests from across the construction industry including from contractors, subcontractors, developers, consultants and individuals.

For further information, please contact Francesca Watson, Practice Manager at 020 7936 9784 or by email:


Al Bawardi Critchlow may decline any request for advice at its sole discretion and without giving any reason. It may cease to advise at any time and shall not be obliged to give further advice beyond that voluntarily offered.  No contract shall come into being with Al Bawardi Critchlow simply by reason of any entity contacting Al Bawardi Critchlow for advice or Al Bawardi Critchlow’s giving it, and no client/solicitor relationship will arise unless Al Bawardi Critchlow is formally instructed. Al Bawardi Critchlow excludes all liability for the accuracy of the advice it gives nor for the consequences of any action taken by any party as a result of such advice, so far as the law allows, and does not make any promises as to how quickly any advice requested will be given.
