The Long View: What parties to long-term project contracts need to know about disputes (and avoiding them)
Long-term contracts for major projects differ from “ordinary” construction contracts. They frequently involve government bodies as the ultimate employer, as well as a complex overlay of lender rights. The contractor’s involvement typically continues long after the physical works are complete. The parties’ contractual rights and responsibilities outlive the original economic and political assumptions that brought them about, but the high lifetime value of the contract can make termination a costly option.
This webinar will look at some key problem areas – and practical solutions – for parties to long term project contracts, including how to notify, manage and quantify claims for breach, the role of lenders in contract disputes, and – when all else fails -- the implications of early termination
