Webinar: Mineral Consultants Handbook - Disputes & Liability
The next AusIMM ConSoc webinar tracing a journey through the Minerals Consultant Handbook will focus on Disputes and Liability. This will cover Chapters 12, 13, and 14 in the Mineral Consultants Handbook.
About this event
Our presenters include Geoff Pitkin, Brian Baumhammer, Greg Hansen, Colin Roberts and John Dunlop.
Liability & Legal Risk authors will be joined by Austbrokers to discuss liability and risks, from a legal perspective. The points made and examples discussed are intended to throw light on potential areas of legal risk, rather than to be regarded as legal advice.
Nearly all contracts have disputes clauses which set out, amongst other things, what constitutes a dispute, how it should be identified, how it should be resolved and by what means. Alternative dispute resolution methods are described, together with some background as to how they are usually conducted, where and by whom.
Intellectual property will also be discussed, including case study examples, providing an understanding of this topic to the mineral consultant.
Discussing and reviewing contracts for AusIMM members is another key piece of risk management advice offered by Austbrokers Countrywide. Greg regularly deals with members advising on amending contracts to ensure there are no gaps between contractual liabilities being agreed too and the cover being provided by insurance product covers.
