The North East Branch ‘Brexit. The effects on the construction industry’ event in Leeds

02 Apr 2019

On 28 March 2019, CIArb North East Branch Chairman Phil Morrison hosted a ‘Brexit. The effects on the construction industry’ event at The Lost and Found Club, in Leeds. The speaker for the evening was Martin Bowdery QC, of Atkins Chambers, who delivered an incredibly well prepared and detailed lecture on the challenges the Construction Industry is facing as Brexit looms. With a heavy bundle of data and reports in front of him, Martin explored 6 key areas of interest to the Construction Industry and concluded positively that change can be an opportunity, whatever one’s political position. Clearly the lecture was made all the more difficult given the current machinations within the Houses of Parliament.

The North East Branch Committee thanks Martin for his extensive preparation and presentation efforts. In addition to the lecture from Martin, CIArb members and their guests, including some of our European brothers who travelled far to attend, enjoyed our northern hospitality, giving a chance to generate new relationships and opportunities. The next North East Branch event is on 23 April 2019 where contract specialist and CIArb Fellow, Damien Wilkinson, will discuss the new NEC4 form.
