The panel will address the immediate impacts of COVID-19, including delays, disruption, and scaling back on investments. The session will explore the problems and concerns that owners and contractors are facing during the crisis and cover the range of contractual/legal rights and remedies open to them, before looking at what we might see in the foreseeable future.

Discussion will include the following issues:

  • How is COVID-19 affecting the industry?
  • Rights and remedies for COVID-19: a look at bespoke and standard contracts.
  • Contract administration during COVID–19: the importance of records.
  • Notices and how to track the impact of COVID-19.
  • The world post COVID-19.
