  • What is the reality of collaborative contracts? In this session we will discuss the pros and cons – do certain standard terms encourage a more collaborative approach? Do they go far enough? How much is the success of a project dictated by attitude and process and how much is down to the contract terms?

    Speakers will include:

    • Martha Mordecai, Bevan Brittan – an experienced construction lawyer, advising on project procurement, forms of project documentation and dispute resolution.
    • Judith Hopper, Bevan Brittan - a litigation partner who is a market expert in PFI/ projects disputes.
    • Angela Lovett, Bevan Brittan– senior member of the Bevan Brittan housing and development team with a focus on construction contracts, consultant appointments, development agreements and other forms of contractual joint venture documentation.

    Please be aware that when registering you are not guaranteed a place until that has been confirmed by the events team as places for Construction Seminar are limited. Our clients will have priority over non-clients but we will endeavour to increase capacity where we can to ensure that as many people as possible have a place.  If the circumstance should arise that we are heavily oversubscribed on an event, we will limit the number of places per organisation; in which case you may be asked to liaise with your team to confirm preferred attendees. Should we have to do any of the above we will be in touch with you at least 2 weeks before the event date.
