This comparative international review of law and practice liability describes the framework in which lawyers, insurers, contractors and clients dealing with liability operate. The act of building involves risk and, in the case of damages occurring after construction, it is often hard to identify responsibility.
This will be an essential reference for construction lawyers, insurers and other senior practitioners and managers in industry, based on research and analysis by CIB (Conseil International du Batiment) as part of the CIB series programme.

This series consists of a carefully selection of state-of-the-art research books derived from CIB activities.
CIB, the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction, was established in 1953 to stimulate and facilitate international cooperation and information exchange between governmental research institutes in the building and construction sector, with an emphasis on those institutes engaged in technical fields of research.
CIB has since developed into a world-wide network of over 5000 experts from about 500 member organisations active in the research community, in industry or in education, who cooperate and exchange information in over 50 CIB Commissions and Task Groups covering all fields in building and construction related research and innovation.
