Seminar: Avoiding and solving conflicts in the construction and engineering sector, 19 September 2018, The Hague

Contracts in the construction and engineering sector regularly contain multi-tiered dispute resolution clauses, as is the case in the ICC model contracts and the FIDIC suite of contracts. These clauses aim to avoid disputes or to resolve them at an early stage. Disputes that are not settled through the preliminary tiers are often resolved through ICC Arbitration.

What are the (dis) advantages and the effects of these type of clauses? How do you formulate a good clause? This seminar will provide insights into the dispute avoidance and resolution mechanisms often adopted in the construction and engineering sector, particularly in light of the 2017 update of the FIDIC suite of contracts and the ICC model contracts. Special attention will be given to the various preliminary tiers, including decisions of engineers, dispute boards and an amicable settlement period. Additionally, the characteristics of ICC Arbitration will be discussed.

This seminar is meant for CFO's, in-house counsel, contract, project and claim managers who work for project owners, engineers and (sub)contractors, as well as for specialists in the field of construction arbitration and other parties involved in the construction and engineering sector.
