A study of a different liability regime and the implementation thereof
This publication is a summary of a master thesis in construction law.
It examines the possibilities of implementing a knock-for-knock clause, typically applied in offshore contracts, in an onshore construction contract. It examines the validity of the knock-for-knock clause implemented in an onshore construction contract under the applicable laws of Denmark, Norway and England. Perspectives are drawn to the new forms of contracts such as Alliance partnerships, IPD and IPI contracts.
