PRE SALES

Getting it right first time

Adopting a binary Procurement approach to Supplier management focussed on category relationships and incentivised on savings whilst not using previous experience of managing contract delivery or improving operational performance puts clients in a weaker position when agreeing contracted services.  

At Atkin Bowen we remember.  We use our experience in delivery to shape contracts to get them right first time. Spending time up front to ensure a future commercial position is not traded unwittingly for an immediate saving.   Let us help you respond to RFIs and RFPs and manage the presales contract negotiations for you.

DISPUTE & ISSUE MANAGEMENT

Helping you when you need it most

We recognise contractual disputes occur and sadly an #EthicalFirst approach seems furthest from teams' minds when emotions are flying.  Our experienced team are used to managing issues and complex disputes to ensure risk is well managed and outcomes are optimised, always ensuring our clients' positions are protected and Settlements reached are fair and equitable.  

We work closely with client's legal teams supporting discovery and reviews to ensure dispute costs are managed and keeping legal teams in check... As we recognise winning a legal argument that ultimately costs your business is worthless to our clients.  

Being #EthicalFirst always gets the right result.  Come and talk to us if you want to know more.
