WHERE: Zoom Webinar

Watson Farley & Williams invites you to our 'On Site: Autumn Construction and Development Legal Briefing'.

In this edition you will learn through three bitesize updates, about the most important construction legal developments and informed analysis from the last quarter. You will also benefit from hearing first-hand about two important new construction cases on which our team were instructed.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Liquidated damages and limitations on liability — Triple Point Technology, Inc v PTT Public Company Ltd
    Having represented PTT at first instance and through each appeal, WFW Partner Robert Fidoe and Lead Counsel James Howells QC (Atkin Chambers) will discuss the recent Supreme Court decision in Triple Point v PTT and its implications for the interpretation of liquidated damages and limitation of liability provisions.
  • Where next for Collateral warranties — Toppan Holdings Limited and another v Simply Construct (UK) LLP
    WFW Partners Barry Hembling and Rebecca Williams and Counsel Tom Owen (Keating Chambers) will discuss the far-reaching impact of this decision on construction projects and real estate transactions.
  • The impact of the construction materials and labour shortage
    WFW Partner Ryland Ash will explore its implications for the Construction industry and how to protect your company when drafting, negotiating and/or administering construction contracts.

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, and who is looking to manage risks from contract placement, wants advice on live projects or guidance regarding dispute avoidance.

Although focussed on the UK market, the legal principles discussed may be relevant to projects in any jurisdiction.
