The above are typical examples of recent significant sums recovered by Praeclarus during Adjudication proceedings.

Praeclarus were responsible for developing and implementing the strategy necessary to enable Adjudication proceedings to be implemented. The Praeclarus team then drafted the adjudication documentation, secured the adjudicator’s appointment, overcame jurisdictional challenges raised by the defendant’s legal team, and managed the overall dispute process. This led to the successful conclusion of obtaining significant wins for our Clients.

We have now secured 30+ successful awards for defending commercial claims, defects, or establishing other points of principle to trigger commercial entitlements.

Tender Reviews

Praeclarus were heavily engaged as commercial lead on the tendering process for GT on Thames Water AMP7 Framework, reviewing terms and conditions, drafting derogations and clarifications, client negotiations and finalisation of the agreed terms. Praeclarus also drafted the risk and assumptions register to meet internal governance requirements.


Following the Contract award, Praeclarus also provided the commercial lead for the first year of the framework until an incumbent commercial resource became available.
