Webinar: Construction Law Update replay | February 2021

We know times have been challenging recently, so we wanted to bring you a bit of normality by hosting our usual construction breakfast, just online. Our usual ‘Espresso Shots’ format: three concentrated, 15-minute discussions on current construction issues, designed to fuel thought leadership. This webinar replay focuses on understanding practical completion, electronic signatures and, in light of Brexit, a procurement update.


Understanding practical completion

Matthew Stevens discusses the practical and legal meaning of the phrase “practical completion” in construction contracts.

Electronic signatures: a good deed?

Followed by Lawrence Mansell, who sets out some of the options for contracting by electronic means – considering the formalities, practicalities and avoidable pitfalls.

Post Brexit: Procurement law update

Finishing off the presentations, Iwan Jenkins provides an update on procurement law following Brexit in the context of construction works and services so that you are aware of any significant changes, as well as looking ahead to future changes in procurement law.

We have posted the webinar recording above, for you to watch at your leisure.
