CPD event | Online | SA | Security of payment | On ‘repeat’ payment claims

with John Vozzo and Martin Frayne

Thursday 6 August 2020 | 6.00 - 7.00pm Adelaide time | Adelaide, SA

A recent decision of the Supreme Court of South Australia, Civil & Allied Technical Construction Pty Limited (CATCON) v Resolution Institute & Ors [2019] SASC 193, highlights complexities that can arise when claimants make successive payment claims for the same work under security of payment legislation. In some circumstances the claimant will be prevented from making ‘repeat’ claims, but not always.

This session will consider the CATCON decision and other recent decisions about repeat payment claims. The session will also cover some practical considerations for claimants, respondents, authorised nominating authorities and adjudicators when dealing with repeat claims.

This session will be chaired by Martin Frayne 'SC'.
