Deconstructing Construction law


A website that explains in plain English the key terms and legal concepts involved in the construction, property development and infrastructure development industries has been launched by Minter Ellison.

Called Construction law made easy, the website includes 24 chapters and covers topics such as contract law, tendering, variations, defects, liquidated damages, green buildings and design obligations.

Practical examples and links to current case law and research materials are provided in the website, which took a year to develop.

Head of Minter Ellison’s Asia-Pacific Construction, Engineering and Infrastructure Division, David Fabian, said the firm was committed to “thought leadership” and actively participating in the construction industry.

Mr Fabian also admitted the website was a good marketing tool and he hoped it would attract business to Minter Ellison.

People who accessed the website could provide feedback, ask questions and contact experts at Minter Ellison.

“It makes us more accessible to people who are facing problems in these fields,” he said.

“It connects with people, it promotes the firm and we are certainly aiming to contribute something to industry thinking in this area.”

Mr Fabian said the firm planned to develop similar websites for other areas of law.

The website, which was launched on 19 June, can be found at
