Was Darwin Right? Risk Allocation in Subcontracts & Economic Darwinism – Victoria

Join us for a legal seminar with Dan Leduc,
Partner at Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP

Was Darwin Right?
Risk Allocation in Subcontracts & Economic Darwinism

One of the worst kept secrets in the construction industry is that the provision of construction services is egocentric and inefficient. Risk assessment is a dark art, and risk allocation is an exercise in economic Darwinism – the food chain can often end with subcontractors.

This seminar will identify examples of where inappropriate risk allocation can hurt you as a subcontractor and how to address those issues. The topics will include such issues as ‘pay when paid’ clauses, scheduling, onerous payment terms, indemnities, and more.

Location: Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour
