Details :

The NEC form of contract is gaining an increasingly high profile in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong government is currently trailing the use of the NEC form of contract in Hong Kong.  Likewise, there is also increasing private sector uptake of the form. The NEC form of contract is unlike other standard forms of contract – it depends from usual legal styles of language incorporates project management techniques and has a different risk profile from other commonly used forms of contract.  Parties who use it often want to bring about an improvement in and costs of project delivery and the attitudes of contracting parties.  But how effective is it? What issue should parties take into account when contracting on an NEC basis?

Rachel Guan of Hogan Lovells and Tony Kwok of EC Harris, who have both spoken to HKIS before, return to offer their insights. Rachael will offer a legal practitioner’s thoughts on the benefits and risks of the form, and Tony will offer tips from his experience of using the form in practice.
