Description:

Since the start of the year the courts have been very busy dealing with various construction disputes. The purpose of this seminar is to consider what practical tips can be taken from the courts’ recent decisions which will improve your business going forward.

In this session we will share insight from the recent decisions which can help you on a day-to-day basis. We will look at:

  • the importance of vetting parties with whom you enter into contracts and the downside of failing to do so;

  • the importance of getting your contracts right and ensuring they are “Act compliant”;

  • the implications of the courts confirmation that collateral warranties are construction contracts;

  • reliance on letters of intent; and

  • what to do if it all goes wrong.
“The level of service has always been excellent, with properly experienced solicitors dealing with appropriate cases" Legal 500
