Free legal advice for members
Institution Members may now access 20 minutes of free legal telephone advice about engineering and business issues covered by construction and engineering law.
The service is delivered via a new partnership with Muckle LLP and covers areas including contracts, insurance and liability.
The benefit is available to Graduate, Companion, Technician, Associate, Chartered, Associate-Members and Fellow Members. Simply contact the firm quoting your membership number and the code "IStructE/LA" to receive your advice.
To get in touch call 0191 211 7724 or email Muckle LLP - a member of the friendly and experienced Engineering and Construction Law Team will respond to your initial enquiry within three days.
At the end of your call you should have the answer to your query or sufficient information to know if you need further advice. You have no obligation to go on to instruct Muckle LLP, but those that do will enjoy discounted rates*: for example, £140 per hour for assistant solicitors.
Peter Welland, Commercial Director at The Institution of Structural Engineers, said:
“The Institution is delighted to offer this fantastic benefit as part of our commitment to offering an ever-expanding range of support to members at all career stages.”
*These rates may change from time to time and you should check with the Muckle adviser if you wish to instruct them.
