Our priority ?
“Dispute prevention. Identifying risks and dealing with those before they crystallize.”
- We discuss in this paper in what circumstances can a contractor be found liable for defects discovered by the building occupier several years after project completion, whether by reason of contractual commitments or by reason of tortious duties arising under statute and common law.
Relation between common law and statute in England and WalesWe critically discuss in this paper the relationship between common law and statute throughout the development of the law of obligations (i.e. contract and tort) in England and Wales and consider whether there are any areas of contract and/or tort law where further statutory intervention would be desirable.
Risk management under standard forms of construction contractWe discuss in this paper the extent to which UK and international standard form construction contracts and consultant appointments include binding provisions for proactive risk management, and consider the effectiveness of those provisions in avoiding or resolving disputes.
