Overview

The retention trust regime was introduced in 2018 to protect contractors and subcontracts.

Description

The retention trust regime was introduced in 2018 to protect contractors and subcontracts.  However, in it's first test with Ebert, it has arguably fallen short of that objective.  This presentation will consider the operation of the regime, its impact on the construction sector, and the limitations exposed by Ebert.  The presentation will be relevant to anyone holding, receiving or certifying the payment of retentions.

Presented by Nick Gillies.  Nick is a Partner in Hesketh Henry, a long-standing commercial law firm with a dedicated construction law practice.  He has specialist expertise in construction, insurance and dispute resolution.  His experience includes all types of building and engineering issues - from time and money claims, to defect disputes, and contract reviews - gained in New Zealand and overseas.
