  • Your SME is facing the uncertain outcome of a claim for damages against which you are eager to protect yourself;
  • Your construction company is looking to limit its liability against co-contracting parties and third parties as much as possible;
  • Your terms and conditions of exclusivity are not being respected by your co-contracting party or third parties;
  • You are looking to conduct a transaction but, for a variety of reasons, you are unable to concretise this legally in the most straightforward manner, forcing you to look for an alternative;
