Event description
Join outstanding experts and discover all you need to know about preparing contracts for success: understand / resolve construction disputes

About this Event

From the very outset, construction projects are complex. Choosing the right contract and understanding your obligations are the keys to success. As a project develops, delay and disruption can be costly. Analysing the cause and effect of delay is a difficult task. Getting it right is vital to avoid and resolve disputes.

Join us in Dublin on 7th November to find out. Topics range from structuring projects for success, to understanding delay analysis, and managing and resolving disputes.

Preparing Contracts for Success

With multiple parties all with competing interests, selecting a contract that works for all involved is a difficult task. As the industry moves towards increased collaboration, innovations in contracting are needed. Jamie Ritchie of LK Shields will take a look at ways of structuring a contract to benefit all the parties involved.

Standard Forms of Contract

Increasingly, projects in Ireland are using a range of standard forms of contract. Ciaran Williams of Fenwick Elliott will be comparing the standard forms most commonly seen on Irish projects. He’ll also take an in-depth look at working under NEC and JCT, explaining the risks and opportunities therein.

Dealing with Delay and Disputes

When delay occurs on a project, demonstrating cause and effect is vital to understanding liability. There are many different methods available. Despite tribunals and industry bodies offering guidance, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Tom Francis of Decipher Consulting will examine how to prepare and present a delay analysis in a logical and methodological way.

Dispute Resolution

The morning concludes with a panel discussion chaired by John Trainor SC. The panel will take a look at the themes of the day and the latest developments in dispute resolution. From avoiding disputes entirely, to choosing the right method of dispute resolution. John will be joined on the panel by Niav O’Higgins and Karen Killoran (Arthur Cox), Bill Bordill (Decipher Consulting) and Martin Cooney (Byrne Wallace).
