Webinar: Contractual issues for construction amid Covid-19

14 April 2020
MEED Mashreq Construction Club will hold its first connect series virtual meeting, to discuss contractual challenges facing construction firms during Covid-19

On 16 April (11:00 am UAE time), the Mashreq Construction Club will hold its first connect series virtual meeting with a special live webinar on the contractual challenges facing construction companies in the UAE during the coronavirus lockdown.

Over the past two months, the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has disrupted every aspect of our lives. In addition to health concerns that we all face, the actions that are being taken in the UAE around the world to slow the spread of the virus are creating a host of unexpected business critical challenges from disrupted supply chains to increased cash flow concerns. In some instances, construction companies may be unable to fulfil their contractual obligations.   

With the coronavirus crisis putting every construction company under stress, the first Mashreq Construction Club – Connect Series will seek to highlight some of the legal considerations that construction companies, their clients and their suppliers should be thinking about.

Featuring insights from Clyde & Co expert team, one of the region’s leading construction lawyers, the webinar will examine the options that might be available to companies that cannot fulfil their contract obligations. It will consider the potential consequences of those options.

  • Michael Grose, Partner, Clyde & Co

  • Mohammad Al Shouli, Executive Vice President, Global Head of Contracting Finance, Mashreq
  • Matthew Heywood, Partner, Clyde & Co
