Insurance Law for the Construction Industry provides comprehensive coverage of the issues involving insurance encountered in the process of construction.

It gives practical answers to all the problems likely to be encountered when negotiating construction contracts, insurance policies or insurance claims.

This book is divided into four clear sections for ease of reference. It begins with a clear exposition of the principles of insurance law and then describes in detail the typical clauses found in insurance policies, the policies to be taken out by standard form construction contracts and how insurance is distributed and regulated. It draws together the many strands of insurance law providing an excellent point of reference for those working in this sector.

Questions of insurance arise in virtually all cases and as such this book will be of practical every day use to both the contentious and non-contentious lawyer. Written by an experienced team of practising solicitors from Reynolds Porter Chamberlain, this work combines both an overview of the relevant insurance law with the specific detail specialists will require.
