  Concurrent Delay – How is it dealt with? Is concurrency in fact a myth?  
Date: 2018-08-23
Time: 6:30pm
Speaker: Trevor Lam and Shourav Lahiri
Quota: 29 /


 This presentation will be delivered by Trevor Lam, Principal, Head of Singapore of CTBH Asia and Shourav Lahiri, Partner of Reed Smith.
The subject of concurrent delays has been heavily debated over the years and often draws varying opinions. In construction contracts, the manner in which concurrent delays are to be dealt with are often ambiguous but contracting parties are amending typical clauses in an attempt to remove the ambiguity. In this session, Trevor Lam will provide a technical opinion on the differing outcomes on concurrent delays depending on whether prospective or retrospective methods of analysis are applied. Following this, Shourav Lahiri will provide an insight on the legal concept of concurrency and whether it can practically be applied. Shourav will also refer to the recent decision of the UK Court of Appeal on the North Midland v Clyden Homes matter, where the parties were able to contract out of the usual consequences of concurrency.
