Senior Accredited Specialists connect with industry
20 April 2018 — Senior Accredited Specialists in Building and Construction (B&C) Law met with in-house counsel/executives from various B&C companies and organisations to share the nuances of the law and practice from their experience. “The Present and Future of Construction Practice in Singapore: A journey from Singapore through the Belt and Road,” organised by Legal Development Cluster provided a platform for discussion and networking between the specialist lawyers and the users of B&C law.
Justice Quentin Loh kicked off the event with an opening address. He pointed to how SAL’s Specialist Accreditation Scheme aims to recognise lawyers for their expertise and give users of legal services a ready reference from which they can select a specialist advisor.
The two panel discussions lasting one and a half hours touched on the latest case law on serving payment claims under the Security of Payment Act and the concept of “fit for purpose” of a structure, and BRI-related topics such as FIDIC standard form contracts, regional infrastructure demands and opportunities.
