The North East Chartered Institute of Arbitrators has joined with Northumbria University to present an informed briefing on recent developments from the specialists at Keating Chambers.

As construction counsel, Sarah Williams has a special insight into current trends in the Technology and Construction Court.

Sarah will concentrate on 7/8 of the most relevant cases of the last 12 months, such as Burgess –v- Lejonvarn, in which an Architect was sued by a friend to whom she gave some “free” architectural advice, or recent cases on the effect of email notices, etc and the new Supreme court ruling on liquidated damages among others
