Join us at our breakfast seminar, where members of our specialist Construction and Infrastructure team will share their experience and provide guidance on some of the key aspects of defects in construction projects.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Practical completion and snagging;
  • Defects periods and retention;
  • Latent defect disputes and resolving liabilities; and
  • Constraints on latent defect claims such as mitigation of loss and liability limitations.

These topics will be considered from a legal and practical perspective.
