Shepherd and Wedderburn announced as headline sponsor of RICS CPD conference

Posted: 21st February 2017

As the headline sponsor of RICS CPD Day, which takes place in Dunblane on 9th March, construction and planning experts from leading law firm Shepherd and Wedderburn will join with other industry leaders to update construction and property professionals from across Scotland with guidance on the emerging developments and challenges in the sector.

The event will focus on property, land, and the built environment, offering key industry updates and economic market outlooks together with growth and inflation forecasts. Speakers will also provide legal updates on the major areas of change expected to impact on the market. These include Commercial Property Rating Revaluation for April 2017, New JCT and SBCC 2016 Construction Contracts, and changes to residential landlord and tenant law. 

 Among the impressive speaker line-up are Shepherd and Wedderburn’s foremost construction, planning, and procurement experts: respectively, Euan McLeod, Ewan MacLeod, Rhona Harper, and Daniel Bain, all of whom look forward to sharing ideas and knowledge with fellow practitioners on the day.

 This event follows on from the firm’s successful sponsorship of RICS’ Dispute Resolution Conference in December, which aimed to help construction and property professionals get to grips with the different options available for resolving disputes during the course of a construction project or following its completion.
