The CLLS Construction Committee acts as a forum for construction lawyers working in the City of London to meet and consider topical areas of law relating to the construction industry. All areas of construction law are catered for, including litigation, drafting, PFI/PPP work and international and domestic projects work. Committee members include many leading practitioners from private practice, as well as leading in-house construction lawyers from major contractors and consultants. The Committee has been very active in recent years and has produced a standard form of novation agreement (having regard to the Blyth decision), a standard letter of intent and a detailed response to the DTI's consultation on changes to the construction provisions of the Housing Grants Act 1996. These documents are freely downloadable via the links below. All members of the CLLS, whether individual members or members of the Society through their firms, are invited to get involved in the activities of the Committee. For further information, please contact the Chairman.
