North East branch UK
21 November 2016, Newcastle
In an effort to serve members in the Newcastle area, the North East Branch held the Keating Construction Law Update in November 2016, hosted by Northumbria University. Sarah Williams of Keating Chambers was the guest speaker, and the event was very well attended despite the torrential rain on the evening. Sarah elected to avoid the cases that have already been commented upon by many others and instead concentrated on some very interesting cases involving Part 36 offers and limitation of liability. It is hoped that this event can become an annual fixture in the Newcastle calendar.
The NE Branch would particularly like to thank;
Dr. Kevin Thomas, Faculty Head of International Development at Northumbria University, for providing a most appropriate venue for the occasion;
Sarah Williams, Barrister of Keating Chambers, who although not in the best of health delivered an engaging, informative and very well received review of the year’s interesting cases;
Rob Langley, Partner, Muckles LLP, and NE Branch committee member, for organising the event.
