Details :

Whether one likes it or not, consciously or unconsciously, everyday construction activities are governed and regulated by contracts. Contract formation and interpretation is therefore at the heart of the skills that construction professionals especially those running construction projects need to master. This is a timely discussion of these important issues in light of recent interesting legal developments in both Hong Kong and the UK.
