Construction Law – Facilities Management
FM (Facilities Management) Contracts create complex arrangements requiring consideration not only of the performance specifications but a range of other commercial issues such as employment law, pensions, indemnities and other regulatory matters.
Very often FM Contracts form part of a much wider commercial arrangement and in such circumstances it is important to have a thorough understanding of such procurement processes, no matter how far down the supply chain the Service Provider may be.
The lawyers at MJD Solicitors have provided pragmatic, commercially focussed legal advice on a number of large and complex FM Contracts, including contracts for the provision of services to schools, hospitals, health centres and local authority accommodation.

We can assist in the drafting of contracts to transfer risk to both subcontractors and consultants, ensuring back to back protection where required.
