King & Spalding invites you to join us for a Seminar “Dealing with Delay and Defects from Contracting and Claims Perspectives” on Thursday 21 November 2019 with the support of The Overseas Construction Association of Japan, Inc. (OCAJI).
The speakers – Chris Bailey (Tokyo), Emerson Holmes (Singapore) and Mike Stenglein (Texas) – are lead partners in King & Spalding’s Construction and Engineering Disputes Practice. Our team has in-depth experience in the construction and engineering industries, with many of our lawyers having dual qualifications as engineers or architects. We have over 50 construction lawyers in the firm based in our worldwide network of offices, giving King & Spalding one of the broadest and deepest benches of construction and engineering lawyers in the world.
In this seminar, we will focus on quality and time as well as the cost implications when issues arise. We will discuss liability and loss in claims arising out of defective works, as well as typical causes, appropriate documentation, and remedies for both contractors and owners when delay occurs. The construction and engineering industries are inevitably complex; multiskilled parties working together in challenging environments constructing technically complex projects—buildings, structures, plants and infrastructure - in conformity with the rigid demands of cost, quality and time. It is not surprising, therefore, that these projects commonly encounter legal and commercial issues, claims and disputes.
