Event Description

Learn Why You Can’t Afford To Ignore Informal And Interim Dispute Resolution Measures

Register now for this 90-minute audio session in which our expert speaker, James G. Zack, Jr., will reveal the true time and cost of international construction arbitration, as well as your options for legal counsel and arbitrators.

A UK contractor constructing an ore processing facility in a sub-Saharan African nation on behalf of a Canadian minerals company files a claim for UK£1.45 million and seeks arbitration when the project owner refuses to settle. That’s an example of an international arbitration. And if you or your clients regularly work on large-scale, far-flung projects, it’s a remedy option you must be well acquainted with.

As construction claims disputes become more complicated—and more global—arbitration has become the preferred dispute resolution mechanism for international corporations. But the growth of this method hasn’t come without criticism and constant change, especially with respect to choice of law, seat, and arbitral institution.

In this program, you will learn:

  • Which 3 arbitral institutions dominate the field of a current 28 globally
  • Which 2 seats of arbitration are favored, while regional centers gain in popularity
  • Why international arbitration is no longer faster or cheaper than litigation
  • Why the confidentiality of arbitration is its strongest selling point
  • How many disputes are settled prior to issuance of an arbitral award
  • How many participants have to appeal an award for judicial enforcement
  • What changes in appellate rights and discovery are ahead
  • What you can do to expedite arbitration proceedings

This presentation is appropriate for project owners, contractors, subcontractors, design professionals, and construction managers working on international projects—as well as legal counsel advising clients concerning international arbitration.

After attending this audio event, you will be well informed about the developing trends concerning international arbitration, including the trend toward informal and interim dispute resolution measures. Plus, you’ll understand how in-house legal counsel manages arbitration proceedings. Given that today’s corporate dispute resolution policies favor arbitration—and virtually all arbitral institutions report a growth in case filings year after year—international arbitration is a mechanism you simply can’t afford to ignore.
