About the Event
This On Demand was recorded on 15 August 2019.
Arbitration is defined as the private determination of a dispute, by an independent third party. Yet the process is not so well understood.
A raft of construction company failures, protracted disputes and proposed legislative changes suggest that construction law, in all its various forms, does not provide a satisfactory framework to deal with the present demands and needs of the industry.
This On Demand seminar explores several key areas where problems in construction law exist, how practitioners can advise their clients on these and what might be done in the future to improve matters.
- Learn more about current contractual issues – how to terminate or resist termination, how to hold the engineer to the contract to account, and proving damages due to defects and delays.
- Understand better the shortcomings of CCA adjudication and what other dispute-resolution options might be preferable.
- Gain insights into the proposed construction law reforms – a fairer approach to Government procurement, new merchant liability, extension of licensing to the commercial sector, and mandatory residential guarantees.
Who should view?
Building and construction lawyers, commercial lawyers, general practitioners with property-owning or construction industry clients, and barristers in civil practice.
The seminar will be relevant to other professionals involved in the construction industry including accountants, engineers, quantity surveyors, building inspectors, and architects.
