About the session:

Construction projects are risky business. Parties often find themselves entangled in disputes about delays, cost blow-outs or defective work. Most disputes are complex, time consuming and costly. In-house lawyers and project managers play a pivotal role in managing these risks. Careful drafting, negotiation and administration of construction contracts can make all the difference. In this presentation, CCK Lawyers will draw on their industry experience to provide a practical guide for in-house lawyers and project managers on: 

1. Identifying risks in construction contracts and choosing the right contract model to manage the risks.

2. Understanding key terms usually found in construction contracts.

3. Issuing and responding to Requests for Tender.

4. Administering construction contracts to avoid disputes.
