Watson Farley & Williams invites you to the next event in our On-Site Construction webinar series.
This webinar comprises three bitesize updates bringing you up to date on the latest key legal developments. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions from our panel members.
In this event, we will cover the following topics:
Who pays for fire safety repairs?
Barry Hembling, Construction Partner
Responsibility for fire safety defects is far from straightforward – landlord, contractor or tenants? Does new legislation provide welcome clarity or create more questions than answers?
Final Accounts in Construction Projects – are they too little, too late?
Ryland Ash, Dispute Resolution Partner
In current unpredictable times for construction, where material costs fluctuate, margins are tight and labour often scarce, cashflow is ever more important. Yet many common contracts are making parties wait many months or even years to be paid. Something needs to change if we are to keep projects moving and parties afloat.
Don’t overlook legal nuisance
Dev Desai, Dispute Resolution Partner
Following the recent Supreme Court decision that Tate Modern’s viewing gallery constituted a legal nuisance to neighbours in a residential block, what is the impact for developers and landowners in confined urban environments?
The session will be moderated by Rebecca Williams and there will be an opportunity for questions.
This webinar is for anyone with an interest in construction and development (including developer, contractor, consultant or funder) in any asset class, who is looking to manage risks from contract placement, wants advice on live projects or guidance regarding dispute avoidance.
Although focussed primarily on the UK market, the legal principles discussed may be relevant to projects in any jurisdiction.
