The Legal & Commercial Group covers a wide spectrum of initiatives that ACE members have indicated are their key issues and challenges. Importantly this includes pre-empting and proactively addressing legal, risk and insurance issues which concern our industry. For example ACE takes a lead role in developing, promoting and solving the relevant legal and contractual issues related to procurement.Alongside this the group constantly reviews the issues related to professional indemnity insurance [PII] to develop risk avoidance and publish relevant PII guidance/briefing notes for use by ACE members. A key objective is to monitor legal and contractual developments and seek changes in legislation where considered necessary such as the campaigning undertaken to change late payment legislation by active consultation with government and other bodies.
