Reading: Managing Risk in Construction Projects - Strategies and Use of Soft Landings
Clarkslegal LLP, One Forbury Square, The Forbury, Reading, RG1 3EB

From 08:00 AM to 10:30 AM on 31 January 2018

We would like to invite you to join us for our breakfast seminar on ‘Managing Construction Risk - Strategies and Soft Landings’, hosted by Clarkslegal and BSRIA, at our Reading office. In light of recent events, we have updated this seminar to include practical tips to help manage the risk of insolvency.

The late Sir Michael Latham said, "no construction project is risk free. Risk can be minimised, shared, transferred or accepted. It cannot be ignored". 

This remains the case. Managing risk has even more significance in the current financial climate. With challenges facing the industry such as labour shortages and Brexit, can initiatives such as BSRIA’s soft landings process help reduce risk?

Join legal experts from Clarkslegal and Michelle Agha-Hossein of BSRIA this January and February and,

  • Identify strategies to understand and reduce risk.
  • Learn to manage your legal risks and the risk of insolvency.
  • Understand the ‘Soft Landings’ process from a technical and legal perspective.
