Description

Society of Construction LawMembers and guests of the Society of Construction Law and the Oxford Club of Constructing Excellence are cordially invited to the Said Business School in Oxford on 14th December 2017, to hear Sir Robert Akenhead speak about his experiences in the arbitral trenches.

Sir Robert was in full-time practice from 1972 until 2007. During that period he developed an international ADR practice as arbitrator, mediator and DRB board member, accepting appointments in London, Dubai and Pakistan.

Sir Robert was appointed a High Court judge in 2007 and sat in the Technology and Construction Court in London. Between 2010 - 2013, Sir Robert was in charge of the Technology and Construction Court and a number of his judgements will be known to construction practitioners including Walter Lilly & Company Ltd v Mackay & Anor [2012] (delays, loss and expense and defects) and Obrascon Huarte Lain SA v Her Majesty’s Attorney General for Gibraltar [2014] (unforeseen ground conditions and termination).

The talk will provide an opportunity for members and their guests to listen first hand, as one of our our most experienced and influential Judges in the Technology and Construction Court shares his thoughts and experiences. A must for anyone involved in Construction!

This event is FREE to members of Society of Construction Law and the Oxford Club of Constructing Excellence, and their guests, and we look forward to meeting with you!
