CIArb’s North East Branch invites you to its event, The 2020 Keating Construction Update on Tuesday 10 March 2020 at The Lost & Found Leeds Club in Leeds.
The Construction update is provided by Callum Monro Morrison of Keating Chambers. With the ever-changing complex environment of the construction industry, having a comprehensive and up to date understanding of contractual and commercial issues is imperative. The past 12 months have seen significant changes to a number of key and fundamental issues, such as further clarification on the enforcement of adjudicator’s awards, protection from insolvency and contractual interpretation. Keep up to date with the latest legal issues and risks by attending this seminar.
Start time: 5:30pm for 6.00pm.
Cost(s): Attendance to this event is free of charge for CIArb members and non-members, but pre-registration is required.
