Building & construction law conference

The building and construction sector in New Zealand is undergoing incredible growth, fuelled largely by the Christchurch rebuild and domestic construction in Auckland. As a result, the market faces increasing regulation, supply and demand challenges and the need to ensure industry professionals keep abreast of nuances to the law and its applicability.

The 2018 Building & Construction Law Conference, organised by Thomson Reuters, addresses these issues and brings together government stakeholders, legal professionals and industry leaders to discuss key issues affecting the sector, including valuable updates related to the newly implemented Earthquake Prone Buildings regulations and the risks and benefits associated with the use of prefabricated and overseas building materials.

The conference also focuses on providing practical solutions to industry professionals and includes discussions regarding securing council approval, drafting commercially successful contracts, avoiding disputes, as well as various dispute resolution options.

We look forward to having you join us for this one-day event where you will learn from and engage with industry experts, expand your knowledge base and develop the skills necessary to successfully navigate the sector.

The full programme will be released over the coming weeks. If you have any questions, or if you would like to register your interest in attending, please email
