Sydney, 2 March 2010: Clayton Utz Construction & Major Projects senior associate Mathew Stulic has been awarded The UK Society of Construction Law's (SCL) prestigious SCL Hudson Prize.
The SCL Hudson Prize is open to entrants from around the world who are invited to submit a substantive paper on an area related to construction law.
Mathew's prize-winning essay titled 'Prevention and the allocation of the risk of project delays: evolution or revolution?' discusses recent Australian and UK judicial statements concerning the operation of the prevention principle and their potential impact on the contractual allocation of the risk of project delays. Mathew said he was delighted to be awarded this year's SCL Hudson Prize. "It is a great honour and I have gratefully accepted an invitation to present the paper to members of The UK Society of Construction Law in London," he said.
Reflecting the depth of talent in the Clayton Utz' Construction & Major Projects team, senior associate Trevor Thomas was also acknowledged with a 'Highly Commended' for his essay titled 'Contract: what contract?'
The National head of the Construction & Major Projects practice at Clayton Utz, Doug Jones AM, said Mathew's and Trevor's achievements were testament to their in-depth knowledge of and experience in practising construction law.
"We are very proud of their achievements," said Mr Jones.
