What We Do

Loots&Charrett Pty Ltd provides training courses in the implementation and administration of construction contracts, tailored to the needs of specific audiences.  The focus of such courses is on the general contractual principles applicable in both common law and civil law jurisdictions, namely, freedom of contract and pacta sunt servanda, as well as the specific features of construction contracts that are widely implemented internationally.  Loots&Charrett training courses can be based on widely used international contracts such as FIDIC, or other industry contracts such as LOGIC, or tailored to the specifics of a company specific contract.  A training course can be provided to suit a client’s specific requirements for in-house training, to be delivered face-to-face, or via a webinar delivered over the Internet.  Read More

Philip Loots and Donald Charrett’s new book “The Application of Contracts in Developing Offshore Oil and Gas Contracts” was recently launched in Melbourne and Perth. HFW hosted a launch function in Melbourne at which Justice Digby summarised the history of offshore oil and gas projects and reviewed the book.  Jones Day hosted a launch in Perth at which the Honourable Julie Bishop set the scene by speaking about Australia’s future as an energy super power.  We are most grateful to Justice Digby and the Honourable Julie Bishop for their kind words in launching the book, and to HFW and Jones Day for generously hosting these events, well attended by a range of professionals working in the offshore oil and gas industry.
