    The Society of Construction Law Australia invite you to a Seminar Quantum Meruit claims following Mann v Paterson Constructions? Tuesday 26 November 2019 at Clayton Utz Level 28 Riparian Plaza, 71 Eagle Street, Brisbane 5:30pm for 6:00pm start Prior to the High Court's recent decision in Mann v Paterson Constructions Pty Ltd [2019] HCA 32, claims by builders and contractors on a quantum meruit basis could not exceed the agreed contractual price. That practice has now been ruled out in many cases. This seminar will cover the background decision, precisely what was and was not decided and how the reasoning can affect both inside and outside the construction industry. The key areas that will be reviewed include: the differences between divisible and entire obligations; understanding what the case decided; the three sets of differing reasoning; variations regulated by statute; and broader impact. Michael Trim has a broad commercial practice providing advice and assistance with disputes concerning building & construction, commercial, insolvency, banking & finance, insurance & re-insurance, professional negligence and commercial property matters.

  3. Did you know there is a species of spider that can jump higher than a building. This is due to its powerful 8 legs and the fact that buildings can’t jump.
