The Construction & Arbitration Practice Group’s KK Cheung and Joseph Chung are hosting a series of bi-monthly client seminars throughout 2013. These seminars cover a wide range of topics and have so far attracted more than 130 clients from the construction industry.
The seminar series started on 31 January with KK Cheung, Joseph Chung and Chris Morgan, the Executive Director of The Contracts Group Limited, presenting on “Practical Tips on Variations”, followed by a seminar on 21 March, giving an “Overview on NEC from a Legal and Practical Perspective”, presented by KK Cheung, Joseph Chung and Robert Pegg, the Managing Director of Navigant. On 24 May KK Cheung and Joseph Chung gave a seminar on “Liquidated Damages & Extensions of Time”. At the latest seminar, on 18 July, KK Cheung, Joseph Chung and Allen Lai, Senior Consultant of Charlton Martin, spoke on “Compensation Events in NEC and Practical Issues Arising from Managing NEC Projects”.
The seminars have been very well-received, judging by the positive feedback and number of questions raised during the Q & A session. KK Cheung and Joseph Chung will be delivering further seminars on 30 September and 21 November on “Pay when Paid and Set-Off” and “Liability for Damages to Third Party Property”.
