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


We are pleased to announce the publication of the 2023 edition of our internationally focused Annual Review of English Construction Law Developments. Now in its thirteenth 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 contains a strong focus on the FIDIC form, with new amendments, a new Guide and a new Second Edition having all been released last year. Delay claims also feature heavily with articles on concurrent delay, the implications of differently worded extension of time clauses and whether unenforceable liquidated damages clauses operate as a cap on general damages for delay.

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