Join me with three experts from chambers for a panel discussion chaired by Peter Hurst on 13th July 2020, looking at construction costs in dispute resolution.
Drawing on expertise from the Commercial, Construction and Costs Teams, 39 Essex Chambers brings you a lively discussion on:
- Changes to Practice Direction 3E, the cut off between incurred and budgeted costs and budget revision;
- What is a good reason to depart from budgeted costs?
- What you need to know on Non-party Costs Orders; and
- Indemnity Costs – a forgotten battle ground?
Chaired by Peter Hurst, Senior Costs Judge of England & Wales from 1992 to 2014, and with market-leading input from their respective fields from Paul Darling OBE QC, Marion Smith QC, Judith Ayling and Shaman Kapoor, this webinar promises to be informed, relevant and one not to miss!

- Martin Cooney, Partner at ByrneWallace
- Bill Bordill of Decipher Consulting
