When making a construction claim it is not sufficient simply to have a ‘good case’. Winning is pointless unless you are able to prove that a loss has been suffered.
In the latest of our construction seminars, construction partner David Spires will examine the key requirements for a genuinely successful claim looking at:
·The legal standard of proof and who bears the burden of discharging it
·The importance of producing evidence to establish an actual loss
·Preservation of material required to reinforce the claim
·The relationship between documentary, witness and expert opinion evidence
·Claims for OHP and wasted management time
·Recovery of sums paid in settlement to third parties
This seminar will conclude with Associate solicitor Bal Manak delivering our quarterly round-up of key decisions affecting the construction industry. Recent cases for discussion include contract interpretation and exclusion clauses and as well as highlighting the introduction of the new Protocol for public procurement claims.
This seminar will be of interest to anyone engaged in the making or defending of construction claims, including contractors, developers, subcontractors, surveyors and other construction professionals.
