DIFC Academy in partnership with LexisNexis Middle East and Galadari Advocates & Legal Consultants will host a training session on Insolvency in Construction. In this training session, our subject specialist considers what you need to do when you find out that the party you are in contract with has become (or is about to become) insolvent. We will look at:
• Who are you in contract with? Which specific entity?
• Does the contract terminate automatically?
• How does the contract define insolvency?
• Impact on subcontractors and suppliers
• Employer step-in rights
• Notice Provisions.
