Construction Quarterly Seminar: Contractual Interpretation and Design Liability

HFW's construction team invite you to a seminar reviewing the law in relation to contractual interpretation and design liability.


27 & 28 February 2018




Max and Katherine will discuss the following issues:

  • The current approach of the English Courts to the interpretation of contracts, including a recent change of emphasis by the UK Supreme Court.
  • Different standards of design liability.
  • Development of fitness for purpose and reasonable skill and care obligations: where are we at the beginning of 2018?

This seminar is being run both as a breakfast seminar on Tuesday 27 February and also as an early evening seminar on Wednesday 28 February.
