The third edition of Wilmot-Smith on Construction Contracts continues to take a clear and practical approach to the law and practice relating to construction contracts in the UK. It provides comprehensive coverage of the substantive law and modern dispute resolution procedures in the field of construction and gives clear guidance when seeking difficult answers. Throughout the work the author provides key practical tips including: where and when you issue proceedings; what the judges will expect and their preferences; and how trials can be made shorter.

A separate section also examines enforcement of adjudicator's awards, covering recent case law on this area. This is carefully examined and digested in detail to ensure the reader has an understanding of the pitfalls of enforcement. Richard Wilmot-Smith QC continues to provide an essential source of reference on this area of the law.

His modern and practical approach is prevalent throughout this book and has helped to establish it as a key resource for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
