June 2011 paper for Legalwise Seminars, presented by Robert Fenwick Elliott

This paper deals with three procedural matters in relation to building and construction disputes in South Australia:

  1. the recent interest in taking cases to the Federal Court instead of the State courts;
  2. a recap on the Worker’s Liens Act; and
  3. an update on the Building & Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Act 2009, and a preview of the challenges that practitioners will face when the legislation comes into operation with effect from 9 December 2011.
