About this Seminar

In this year’s iteration, SCL (Singapore) continues to broaden its traditional geographical focus and presents its annual round-up of key legal issues affecting the construction law industry in Singapore. The importance of keeping abreast with these legal developments needs no explanation.

We have the pleasure of having two eminent construction law practitioners, Mr Edwin Lee and Mr Daniel Waldek, as our distinguished speakers.

Mr Edwin Lee will provide an overview of the recent developments in adjudication under the Security of Payment (SOP) Act and the latest construction law cases in Singapore over the past year.

Mr Daniel Waldek will provide a review of the English construction law developments and decisions elsewhere in the common law world that may be particularly relevant to Singapore.
