On behalf of the Faculty, Stephen Cornish & Reema Bharakda-Patel have organised a Faculty Forum Webinar which will be presented to you by the video-conferencing app called ZOOM on Monday 5th October 2020 at 4.00 p.m. until 5.30 p.m.

Sir Vivian Ramsey will be delivering the subject on:

  • 10 years on from Kaye v Lawrence

In 2010 Sir Vivian Ramsey was a High Court Judge but he decided to exercise his right to sit as a judge of the County Court to hear the appeal in Kaye v Lawrence. His decision in this case has provided clarity to party wall surveyors, confirming that security for expenses under section 12(1) of the Party Wall etc. Act (‘the Act’) is available for all works notifiable under the Act. Although Sir Vivian was sitting in this instance as a County Court judge, his status as a High Court judge and as a civil engineer has clearly been persuasive; 10 years on, his decision has not been reversed. The Faculty is delighted that Sir Vivian will be giving us his thoughts on the case and security for expenses.  

Sir Vivian is now an international judge, arbitrator and mediator, following careers in civil engineering and the law. He has spent much of the past five years flying around the world to deal with cases in every continent.

He has many other roles and titles including Visiting Professor at King’s College, London where he lectures MSc students in Construction Law and Dispute Resolution. He is Chair of the Advisory Board of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering in the UK. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2013. He is an honorary Fellow of the American College of Construction Lawyers and was founding President and continues as a Fellow of the International Academy of Construction Lawyers.
