Praemonitus praemunitus (forewarned is forearmed) has always been a good motto, and I am pleased see that Richard Winward uses it to suggest that my new book is valuable for paymasters as well as contractors.
I have long thought that the Australian Construction Law Newsletter is rather a good publication. and I am even more favourably disposed to it since they have just published a favourable review of my book Extra-Contractual Recoveries by Phillip Greenham, until a few years ago the senior construction, engineering and infrastructure partner at Minter Ellison, Melbourne, and now arbitrator.
The review says that I have “vast knowledge and interests” and that the book is “informative, authoritative and comprehensive”. That is very flattering, of course, especially coming from someone with such formidable seniority and experience. More practically, it says
Any advisor looking to assist a contractor who has its back against the wall because of provisions in a contract will be greatly assisted by the book.
