In this session, the second in a series of webinars in partnership with IStructE, Griffiths & Armour will focus on contractual liability and how a growing imbalance in risk -v- reward is influencing insurers’ perception of the construction sector, impacting on project delivery and leaving all parties more exposed.

When it comes to negotiating contracts, many consultants are left feeling that they are the problem and any attempt to limit their exposure is unreasonable:

  • Is that actually the case?
  • Is it in everyone’s interests that we seek to achieve a fairer balance between risk and reward? and
  • Is it right to look for an insurance solution to what is in fact a liability problem?

Examining those questions, and picking up on feedback from our last webinar, we will look at:

  • What individual firms should be doing to protect their position;
  • The challenges they may encounter; and
  • The dangers for firms leaving themselves too exposed.

The webinar is free to IStructE members who can register by filling out the form below. Please submit any questions you would like the panel to answer in the Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
