Session 9: The Building Safety Act: What’s Occurring.

28 February 2024

Speakers: Siân Mirchandani KC and Paul Fisher

Siân Mirchandani KC and Paul Fisher provide a summary of the key points of principle in recent cases relating to the Building Safety Act 2022 (BSA 2022). What common points are being taken by parties in litigation? How are cases currently being pleaded? How are the arguments evolving? There will also be a fireside chat format as Siân discusses some of the new types of claim on the horizon (for example, claims against product manufacturers). This talk is ideal for professional liability and construction practitioners who are seeing BSA and/or Grenfell-type claims coming through the door – from those who want to remind themselves of the basics, to those who have ample experience but want to consider where these disputes are heading in 2024.
