Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act 2017 (“BIFA”) has now become an integral part of getting paid for construction work in Queensland. One of the integral aspects of the BIFA is the very short timelines. In an environment where timelines are critical, we are construction lawyers with industry knowledge, who can give you the answers you need, when you need them.

We are focused on providing our clients with timely and cost-effective advice. Our experienced lawyers have represented clients in BIFA matters from a few thousand to a few million dollars.

We know the deadlines imposed on building industry participants for both BIFA claimants and respondents. We are equipped to ensure you meet these deadlines.

We are experienced in BIFA adjudication applications and responses. Our firm is capable of mobilizing a team on short notice to meet the often onerous time requirements of the BIFA.

In circumstances where you are unsatisfied with the result of a BIFA decision, we are able to advise you of your options in a commercial and expedient manner.

Another facet of our BIFA practice area is advising clients with regards to the best practices in issuing and dealing with BIFA claims. We can advise on appropriate drafting for BIFA claims and invoices, incorporating terms in contracts and subcontracts consistent with BIFA legislation, and provide advice on how best to respond to a BIFA claim.
