Commercial Management Services

The Service

Linked to the Contract Analysis service, G Gillis Ltd also provides commercial management advice tailored to enable clients to optimise the management of operational commercial risk, revenue and cost.

This advice falls under two broad headings:

Project-specific Advice

This typically includes providing advice in respect of commercial procedures, providing assistance with key items of correspondence/submissions and assisting in the progression and resolution of the variation/change account.

Operational Commercial Advice

A key process risk faced by any client employing a subcontractor in today’s construction sector is the risk of a “smash & grab” adjudication associated with payment.

As the recent court rulings demonstrate, any failure to issue a valid:

Payment Notice

Jawaby Property Investment Ltd –v- the Interiors Group Ltd [2016] EWHC 557 (TCC);

Payless Notice

ISG Construction Ltd –v- Seevic College [2014] EWHC 4007 (TCC) and Kersfield Developments (Bridge Road) Ltd –v- Bray and Slaughter Ltd [2017] EWHC 15 (TCC)

can have significant implications on operational cashflow. Given this, G Gillis Ltd offers a process audit to ensure that risks such as this are effectively managed.
