We are proud to advise that Lydia Sharpe won the Society of Construction Law essay competition with her essay titled “Unprecedented! NZS3910, Risk Allocation and COVID-19”.
Victoria Bortsova received a commendation for her essay, “Centrality of Price in New Zealand Procurement: Time for Change”, which has been recommended for publication.
Katie Kyung also wrote an essay entitled “How Much Does One Truly Deserve? A critical analysis of the New Zealand and Australian High Courts’ approach to quantum meruit claims within the construction industry”.
Hesketh Henry entered three essays into this year’s competition, the third year in which we have entered. This year builds on last year’s success where we achieved second place and an honourable mention. We are pleased once again to have two essays receive recognition in a year in which competition was vigorous.
The number of entries and the results we have achieved are reflective of the breadth of our expertise in construction law and the depth and excellence of our team.
