About this Webinar

In this year’s iteration, SCL (Singapore) continues to broaden its traditional geographical focus and presents its annual round-up of key legal issues affecting the construction law industry in Singapore. The importance of keeping abreast with these legal developments needs no explanation.

We have the pleasure of having two eminent construction law practitioners, Ms Laina Chan and Mr Christopher Chong, as our distinguished speakers.

Ms Laina Chan will review some of the important decisions from around the world that may be particularly relevant to Singapore.

Mr Christopher Chong will provide an overview of the recent developments in adjudication under the Security of Payment (SOP) Act and the latest construction law cases in Singapore over the past year.
