Case law: Sub-contractors taking over existing work beware claims from previous sub-contractors

Sub-contractors brought in to complete existing works should consider asking the main contractor to disclose the terms of contracts with previous sub-contractors, or risk a claim that by agreeing to finish the existing work, the new sub-contractor induced the main contractor to breach those contracts. If necessary, consider asking for indemnities from the main contractor in case a claim is made.
