Annual Review of 2012

There have been many important and interesting developments in construction law recently.

It is essential for everyone who works in the construction industry to maintain a working knowledge of the latest legal changes so that they remain up to date with current best practice and are not caught unawares.

In our Annual Review of 2012, we have summarised some of the key legal developments of the past year, providing updates on issues including:

  • The obligation to proceed regularly and diligently – can it be implied into a construction contract?
  • What level of supporting information must a contractor provide in order to bring a successful loss and expense claim?
  • Concurrent delay – what is the correct approach under English law?
  • Do you have to pay an adjudicator’s fees if his decision is unenforceable?
  • New contract documents issued by JCT and NEC.
  • Adjudication update.
