CMS Annual Review of English Construction Law Developments: An International Perspective


We are pleased to announce the publication of the 2022 edition of our internationally focused Annual Review of English Construction Law Developments. Now in its twelfth year, the Annual Review summarises key developments in English construction law over the previous calendar year including developments in related common law jurisdictions. The publication has been prepared with our international clients in mind and aims to provide a greater degree of background and analysis than our regular Law-Now alert service.

This year’s edition continues to be influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic and includes articles on frustration and force majeure claims, on-demand bonds and intentional breaches of contract. We also report on developments in relation to the law on liquidated damages, another a topic of special interest in light of the delays to many projects occasioned by the pandemic.

Previous editions of the Annual Review can be accessed on the Construction portal of our Law-Now website found here.
