The ripple effect of the leaky building saga

As guests of the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ), Construction Partner Janine Stewart and Senior Associate Kate Muldrew led a webinar on the impact of the leaky building crisis, facilitated by Mark Kelly, AMINZ President.

During the session, Janine and Kate closely examined the impact that defective building cases have had on shaping New Zealand’s common law, the scope for directors to be held personally liable, and how alternative dispute resolution can be utilised (particularly in latent defect cases moving forward).
