What is professional negligence? Who, for that matter, is a ""construction professional"" and what are their obligations in contract and their obligations in tort? In what circumstances might the difference between the obligations be important? These questions are of crucial importance to contractors, architects, quantity surveyors, engineers, project managers, and multi disciplinary practices, and not simply to construction lawyers.

It is brief and simple, and yet solidly authoritative. It should also be helpful to lawyers and to students in construction and in law. However, the emphasis in the book is on the practical aspects of professional negligence in the construction industry and it is not primarily intended to be a 'legal practitioner' work.
