Supply chains are becoming more complex. Our expert lawyers are assisting clients with a myriad of challenges each day.

In an era dominated by uncertainty, organisations are using Maddocks to mitigate their supply chain risk.

Production delays, skyrocketing transporting costs, bottlenecks at ports leading to delays of weeks or months, price increases on key materials, inadequate access to plant and equipment and a shortage of skilled workers across multiple industries are all combining to create one of the most challenging periods for organisations to operate.

Maddocks have been advising private and public sector clients on their supply chain structuring and methods of procurement. We provide support to clients on all aspects of their domestic and international supply chain, including contractual risks, meeting regulatory requirements, cross border legal issues, chain of responsibility for transport arrangements and modern slavery. There has been a resurgence in the value offered by alternative procurement models and we are helping clients re-think their approach to procurement with earlier, structured and collaborative engagement the key to successful outcomes.

Lawyers across our construction, procurement, commercial, restructuring, employment, safety, litigation, franchising and leasing teams are successfully assisting clients navigate these critical and intricate issues on a daily basis.
