Welcome to the adjudication-themed February 2018 Issue of the Hardwicke Construction and Engineering Newsletter!
This issue is dedicated to the relaunch of our highly successful fixed fee adjudication scheme.
It has been an exciting past few months for Hardwicke. We were delighted to win the prestigious ‘Chambers of the Year’ award at the Legal Week British Legal Awards. On an individual level, Nigel Jones QC received special recognition at the Modern Law Awards earlier this month where he was ‘highly commended’ in the Barrister of the Year category. This follows our success in being named the 2017 Legal 500 ‘Construction and Engineering Chambers of the Year’.
With both Legal 500 and Chambers UK Bar Directories now published, we are pleased to report that, once again, the Hardwicke Construction Team has done exceptionally well. Hardwicke remains a leading construction set in both directories with the majority of the Construction Team’s senior members recommended in that area.
In Legal 500, we have Catherine Piercy newly recommended in the related area of professional negligence (an area in which Hardwicke is also recommended as a leading set). In addition Chambers UK has a section for Property Damage in which Catherine was also newly recommended.
Over the coming year, there are a number of exciting events to draw your attention to. Members of the Hardwicke Construction Team will be attending MIPIM 2018 and we are hosting a Hardwicke party on Tuesday 13 March. If you would like to join us, please let us know!
Starting in March and continuing throughout the spring/summer, we will be kicking off a new J2J Construction seminar series. This was a tremendous success in 2017 and we look forward to welcoming you to a new set of talks this year: full details are here.
Also in March, we are looking forward to the launch party at JLT’s offices on 8 March of Hardwicke’s new practitioners’ text on Construction Professional Indemnity Insurance. This will be followed in April by the international launch of the Construction Professional Idemnity Insurance book, by Paul Reed QC, in Dubai. Please let us know if you are interested in attending either event.
Thank you for reading,
