Every construction or engineering project needs to be designed.

In this breakfast seminar, ​presented in three locations, our Partner, Keith Bishop, will ​look at the issue of design liability in construction and engineering projects.  Keith will take a look at some recent case law and the approach of the courts as well as some of the more commonly used standard form contracts to the issue of who carries responsibility for design. What is the standard expected and how does that affect the interfaces between different designers?

This practical guide to the key issues is not to be missed.
