We are very pleased to announce that Tracey is back with the firm full time now. Tracey recently announced...
"After 4½ years with Master Builders Members Legal, my time has come to an end. I am incredibly proud of all of the legislative changes that I was able to achieve during that time. The fight was unrelenting at times....
....I am extremely happy now to be able to focus all of my time on Wood L&M Solutions. It has been busy juggling the two firms so having a single focus now is a great relief."
We are happy to announce that Tracey will be joining Aleisha MacKenzie (Construct Law Group), Kate Raymond (QBCC Assistant Commissioner – Service Trade & Regulatory) and the Qld Law Society on 26 May to discuss the practical implications of the many amendments that have recently been made to the QBCC Act and the BIF Act – Statutory Trusts and Progress Payments.
The panel will discuss the key changes that are creating most of the issues/concerns so far and will also provide some practical suggestions as to how best to minimise exposure to penalties and unnecessary disagreements between parties because of a misunderstanding of the law. There is confusion amongst lawyers as to how some of the legislation operates so it is important that lawyers as well as industry participants carefully consider the amendments and understand what changes they need to make to their contracts and systems/processes to comply.
There has been a lot of chatter in the press and via various channels and clients about issues regarding supply and demand and the impact on building contracts and negotiations with clients regarding cost increases and delays. This session aims to inject some practical advice as well as demystify things like Cost Plus contracts and Rise and Fall provisions and how to negotiate variations or contract termination. We will be considering all sectors of the industry - Residential, Commercial and Subcontracts.
If there is sufficient interest, we will run an additional event on the Gold Coast. Please let us know if you are interested.
