4:15 PM Recent Court Judgments on Construction Delay and EOTs Arising from recent judgments in the TCC and Court of Appeal, this talk considers how preliminary issues were successfully employed to determine key principles governing how EOTs should operate in construction contracts, and to apply current law on the interpretation of contracts and arguments of ‘commercial common-sense’ –  by Paul Cowan and Simon Hale
4:55 PM NEC 3 – Key Features, Pitfalls and the NEC4 Future NEC3 is the standard form contract most commonly used by the UK construction and infrastructure sector and there is no reason to think that NEC4 will not enjoy similar popularity. We look at how an NEC3 contract is structured, how it deals with such things as defects and compensation events, what the duty of ‘mutual trust and cooperation’ entails and what is likely to be different under NEC4 –  by Fiona Sinclair QC and Peter Morcos
