In the second of this two part series, David Fearon FCIArb will look at the various circumstances in which a construction contract that contains no express termination provision can be terminated or expire. He will examine the concept of “fundamental” breach and what it entails, how and when a right to terminate arises; how it is exercised, when might it be lost and what happens if termination is unjustified. He will also look at some associated issues such as the difference between termination and recission. This essential companion piece to part one will again remind and stimulate the experienced practitioner as well as the student in an area of law where pitfalls abound.
There will be an opportunity for questions to be submitted using the ‘chat’ facility during the webinar. Time will count towards education hours.
