World renowned experts in the field will lead sessions and be on hand to encourage interactive discussion among participants.
“It would be hard to imagine a more appropriate venue for a construction law conference than Dubai, nor a more appropriate time to hold one,” said Essam Al Tamimi, Senior Partner, Al Tamimi & Company and Member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration. “The United Arab Emirates’ recent accession to the New York Convention, and its consultation on a new federal arbitration law based on international best practice, show a clear intention to promote and institutionalize effective dispute resolution at the highest level. This conference has found its natural home.”
The conference will take place on 22-23 April and will:
- Review the procedure for claims and disputes under FIDIC contracts
- Explain the legal entitlements of the contractor and employer
- Focus on specific features and practical implications of dispute resolution in international construction contracts (notably on dispute boards and arbitration)
Sami Houerbi, Director for the Middle East & Africa, ICC Dispute Resolution Services – ADR, ICC International Court of Arbitration, said: “International construction disputes have for many years represented a significant portion of the disputes submitted to the ICC International Court of Arbitration. Anyone involved in construction matters and dispute resolution – including engineers, contractors, government officials, financial institutions, arbitrators, and legal advisors should make this event a priority.”
