YSG: One Day Seminar on Contract Management 2017

On 22 April, the One Day Seminar on Contract Management (“Seminar”), jointly organised by the young groups from the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (East Asia Branch), the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (Hong Kong Branch), the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors and the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (collectively “Organising Committee”), with the Young Solicitors’ Group (“YSG”) being a supporting organisation, was successfully held at Christian Family Service Centre, Kwun Tong.

Around 300 professionals from the Law Society and the five other professional institutions took part in this year’s Seminar. The Organising Committee invited experienced professionals in the legal and engineering sectors to speak on topics including the practical level of procurement, negotiating settlement and construction management in construction-related projects, basic know-how of different construction contracts and background knowledge of common forms of alternative dispute resolution.

We are grateful to our speakers, Sr. Daniel Chang (The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors), Mr. Joseph Chung and Mr. Justin Yuen (Deacons), Sr. Paul Wong (Chinney Construction), Mr. Honic Yip (Gary Soo’s Chambers), and Sr. Andy Mack and Sr. Vincent Chong (Chun Wo Construction), for sharing their invaluable expert insights with us, and all those who participated in this event.

We look forward to the next One Day Seminar and future co-operation with the Organising Committee in joint professional events.
