This month's article from Griffiths & Armour explains the benefits of net contribution clauses (NCCs) and clauses which limit an engineer's liability.


The intention behind an NCC is for an engineer’s liability in a multi-party dispute to be limited to an equitable proportion of any losses. It seeks to modify the effects of joint and several liability, a principle which otherwise applies in circumstances where more than one party is liable to the same claimant for the same loss.
