This highly-regarded product has been designed as an essential reference tool to assist parties to construction contracts, their consultants and advisors.
Authors John B Dorter and JJA Sharkey provide a detailed analysis of the principles and authorities and of the provisions of the standard forms. In addition, they also discuss comparable clauses. The product serves to draw attention to the many problems and traps which, because of the drafting of clauses, can and do become financially considerable for parties to construction contracts.

The product contains a selection of groundbreaking judgments specifically selected by the two authors.

Cross-references to the related commentary are included at the end of the author note, ensuring this product is an easy-to-use reference guide for specialists and non-specialists alike.

Legislation contains cross-referenced annotations, noting the location and main point of discussion within the insightful commentary. Features such as recommended reading, the extensive coverage of legislation with Editor's Notes, cross-references to cases and articles published in the Building & Construction Law journal, plus State-based Court Practice Notes, highlight the ways in which this product is an essential guide and reference.
