Fenwick Elliott Annual Review 2011/2012

Our 15th Review contains our usual round up of the key developments in the construction and energy arena over the past year. This includes a summary of everything you need to know about the payment and adjudication changes introduced in October 2011. We also take the opportunity to review a number of key questions regarding the formation of your contract. Whenever a dispute arises, the first question is always: what does the contract mean? We have articles about contract formation, implied terms, subject to contract negotiations and the classic “battle of the forms”.

There are plenty more articles for your consideration, the links to which are below or you can download a PDF of the full Review by completing the “Download our Annual Reviewform.
