Given the complexity of issues and the amounts that are typically involved in construction disputes – particularly those arising from large-scale development projects – preparing early and properly for a potential construction dispute is an important process, but one which can be time-consuming and expensive. Preparing for a potential construction dispute where a formal dispute is likely, but may or may not ultimately arise, can therefore be a balancing act. So how can a party best prepare itself in these circumstances?
We are pleased to share with you a podcast by Herbert Smith Freehills' Construction & Infrastructure Group in which we discuss the legal and practical considerations where a potential construction dispute is on the horizon.
This episode is also accompanied by a checklist which sets out some of the key matters to be considered when preparing for a potential construction dispute. The checklist can be viewed and downloaded here.
This is the latest episode in Herbert Smith Freehills' 'Construction Contract & Claims Management' podcast series. In the next episode in this series, we will be discussing how to navigate settlement discussions and prepare settlement agreements in the context of construction claims and disputes.
