Construction Industry

The construction industry is commonly viewed as an economic bellwether, since it is one of the first to feel the impact of recession and lack of market investment, and one of the last to feel the benefits of growth and increased confidence.


Continuing our Business Insolvency series, this webinar looks at the challenges of dealing with an appointment in the construction industry, and how best to maximise value in what can be a very challenging environment.

What rights do you have in relation to contracts, and where in the contractual relationship do you stand? How do you best protect the value of work-in-progress, deal with completion and collect your retentions? And what can you do to protect assets on site immediately following your appointment?
