About the Webcast

Construction law has evolved in numerous ways over the past few years. In England and Australia, many developments have taken place along common lines. But there are also some notable differences, which give us cause for reflection as to ‘which approach works best’.

This webinar will consider some of the key developments in construction law and notable areas of divergence in construction law between England and Australia regarding:

1. Quantum meruit following a termination – is Mann v Paterson the end of a branch line?
2. HGCRA v SoP:

(a) ‘kitchen sink’ claims vs payment claims for work performed under a contract; and

(b) the public law angle.

3. Home building contracts – to regulate, or not to regulate?
4. Licensing of contractors – driving a Monaro or riding a Malvern Star?
5. Statutory misleading or deceptive conduct – homegrown norm and B2B battering ram.
6. Industrial relations – the two cultures.
