Collateral Warranties and Case Law Round-up

December 5, 2019 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld
1 Saint Andrews Drive Glasgow G68 0EW United Kingdom + Google Map

Anne Struckmeier, a Partner in Construction and Engineering at Addleshaw Goddard LLP, will present a FREE half day session on the following:

Collateral Warranties
Collateral warranties are a fundamental aspect of construction contracts and regularly provide the basis for recovery.  After a few years of calm waters the Scottish courts have yet again thrown legal advisors into turmoil over collateral warranty wording and remind us of the consequences of getting it wrong.

Are your collateral warranties fit for purpose? Do you know the implications of what you are signing? This seminar will give you the confidence to check the strength of the collateral warranties you issue and the extent of obligations imposed by those that you sign.

Case Law Round-Up
The construction sector throws up important case law on a regular basis and the last 12 months have been no exception. For this seminar we have picked those cases which are not just interesting points of law but which will be of importance to the daily running of your business.

Cases include those covering bonds and guarantees, payment provisions, time-bar, adjudication, liquidated damages, practical completion, inadvertent risk allocation, insurer claim notification requirements, and NEC 3 target cost provisions and the impact on interim payments at main contract and joint venture agreement level.

The planned timing’s of the event will be as follows:

0900-0930 Registration with tea/coffee and a breakfast roll
0930-1030 Collateral Warranties
1030-1045 Tea/Coffee Break
