When a project runs into difficulty – or, worse yet, generates a multi-million dollar rectification claim – each consultant’s liability will often be determined in large part by the terms of the consultancy agreement, including the scope of services.
Over the last twenty years, it has become essential for consultants on commercial and government projects to be fluent in legal terminology, and recognise when they are being asked to sign a contract provision that imposes upon them greater commercial or insurance risk than is ordinary. As contract lawyers come up with more inventive means of allocating risks, it is more important than ever to stay up to date.
Please join us to hear from our speakers, as they take an in-depth look at some of the central issues associated with consultancy agreements:
Wendy Poulton – Manager Risk Services from informed by Planned Cover -will discuss the key insurance risks currently found in consultancy agreements, and how these have changed (or not) over the last decade.
Natasha Stojanovich and Elon Zlotnick – Lander & Rogers Lawyers’ Special Counsels – will discuss commercial issues in consultant contracts.
Mark Murphy – Fender Katsalidis, Anna Piatkowska – Denton Corker Marshall and Tony Allen – Ashton Raggatt McDougall – will be joined by our first two speakers for a panel discussion on the practical side of contract negotiation.
Please join us for a rare chance to evaluate your own experiences of negotiating commercial and government contracts, and learn from your colleagues’ insights.
