Avoiding Claims explores the pre-contractual, contractual, and post-contractual liabilities of those involved in the construction industry, from architects, engineers and quantity surveyors to contractors and sub-contractors. It presents an important yet frequently confusing subject by way of a question-and-answer format. Flow diagrams explain procedure in arbitration and in the courts, and the book features 'cautionary tales' - the cases where others got it wrong. Readers' questions are answered simply, directly and concisely, and the book is applicable not only for everyday use in the construction industry but also as a reference guide for problem solving.
