The suspension or termination of construction contracts can have significant commercial implications for developers. No doubt, developers will already be aware that the right to suspend and, in particular, terminate, a construction contract should be used sparingly. But what are the potential pitfalls to be mindful of if it becomes necessary to suspend or terminate a construction contract, or if one is on the receiving end of a suspension or termination notice?

We are pleased to share with you a podcast hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills’ Construction & Infrastructure Group which explores the legal and practical issues arising from the suspension or termination of construction contracts.

The episode can be found on iTunes, Spotify and SoundCloud.

This episode is also accompanied by a checklist which sets out some of the key matters to be considered when terminating or suspending a construction contract. The checklist can be viewed and downloaded here.

This is the latest episode in Herbert Smith Freehills’ ‘Construction Contract & Claims Management’ podcast series. In the next episode in this series, we will be discussing how to assess the legal merits of construction claims, with a particular focus on claims brought by contractors against employers.
