Dear SCL(S) members,
Welcome to the second edition of our 2019 Newsletter!
We are delighted to have made a strong start to the new CPD year with a number of events held in the first few months of 2019, including our 2019 Networking Cocktail event.
We kicked off this year with the Annual Construction Law Update 2019 event which was chaired by Mr Toh Chen Han, who is Chairman of our Council with two eminent construction practitioners Ms Monica Neo and Mr Ho Chien Mien as speakers in what was an inspired conference. This was followed by Dr Sean Brady’s instructive talk on “Causes of Catastrophic Failure in Construction – A Guide for Lawyers and the Layperson” in mid-February.
In mid-March, we held our annual Networking Cocktail event and what an event it was – for those who missed it, do see the photos here!
FIDIC’s rainbow suite of contracts are probably the most widely used standard forms of construction and engineering contracts in the international construction industry. With the much anticipated publication of FIDIC 2017 in late 2017, we felt that it was an opportune time to take a constructive look at its changes particularly those concerning dispute resolution. In late March, I chaired the “Evolution of Dispute Resolution Contractual Provisions in Standard Forms For Construction and Engineering Contracts” seminar with Mr Alex Wong and Mr Keith Phillips as speakers.
In late April, I will be chairing Mr Samuel Widdowson’s talk on “The Use of Tribunal-Appointed Experts in Construction Arbitrations” in what promises to be an enlightening talk on what could be considered as a somewhat new trend appearing (or perhaps re-appearing) in construction arbitrations. I look forward to catching up with you then!

Thanks ever so much again for your continued support!
