International law firm Pinsent Masons is working with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) to help London's civil engineers get maximum performance from their supply chains.
Neal Morris, a Partner at Pinsent Masons, will be participating in a ICE seminar in Westminster on the evening of Monday 17 September 2012.
Director of ICE London, Miranda Housden, said: "ICE London runs a programme of events aimed at helping civil engineers develop their knowledge and professional expertise; a key part of that includes inviting experts to speak at the events and we are delighted that Neal Morris has agreed to speak at this event.
"We have seen from the Olympic Park development that civil engineers can deliver major projects on time and within budget but those are skills which need to be developed so that the supply chain is managed to get maximum benefit.
"That is where Neal's expertise will be beneficial and his knowledge of delivering Hong Kong's new airport is particularly relevant with the current discussion about a Thames Estuary Hub Airport".
Neal is a Partner and specialist Construction and Engineering lawyer. An acknowledged leader in his field, he advises on a range of legal risk management issues, from procurement advice and contract drafting, 'Procurement to Completion' advisory work, dispute avoidance training and all forms of dispute resolution.
He has extensive experience in acting for all sectors of the industry, from funders, developers, contractors, sub-contractors and insurers to engineers and architects. His experience includes two years in Pinsent Masons' Hong Kong office, where he advised on major civil engineering and building projects, including the new airport.
Delegates are invited to regiser their interest in attendance at www.ice.org.uk/Events-conferences/Events/Effective-Supply-Chain-Management-and-Performance.
