Over the years the courts reflect a frightening number of tales such as those illustrated by our selection of recent cases. To avoid such situations, be sure you and your team are aware of the basics and the pitfalls.

Have you any similar tales from the coalface or any real contract law problem or example that you would like to share? Let Professor Capper and the Lovells team know by emailing projects. engineeringteam@love lls. com.

All will be treated in confidence and the best featured in forthcoming articles and if possible tackled live at the NCE/Lovells legal surgeries in the new year.
