Welcome to wolf hirth consult
I am a senior expert with international experience in contract and claim management for the plant construction, the real estate industry and the construction industry.
I accompany the implementation and operation of a Contract Management end-to-end:
With a focus on speedy solution at reasonable cost, I advise and assist in the assessment, handling and resolution of contractual disputes. This should avoid long legal disputes with uncertain outcome and provide economically justifiable solutions.
In plant construction, the real estate industry or the construction industry, project contracts are constantly altered because of deviations from the originally agreed scope during the project execution - intentionally or unintentionally, by one of the parties themselves or by third parties. These changes lead to increase of costs and time extension. And as both parties have contrary objectives, conflict is imminent. For one party there is the budget target and the other part wishes to improve the price by submitting respective claims.
By my standards I handle all contractual aspects of the project by a holistic approach. This includes the complete documentation of the contractual agreement and the project, the handling of correspondence and the connection to time and cost management. I manage and moderate the interfaces between the team players of the project, including lawyers and reviewers. My concern is an open and appreciative communication between all parties, in which a constructive debate leads to solutions as quickly as possible.
If legal procedures cannot be avoided, I also assist in preparing substantial documentation and evidence for arbitration and legal proceedings.
As your Contract and Claim Manager I am at your service in three different ways:
