There is probably no area of activity more in need of reliable dispute resolution procedures than construction projects, especially if more than one jurisdiction is involved. The second edition of this eminently practical guide greatly facilitates the process for all parties concerned. The text, now updated to include the latest edition of arbitral rules, considers the full range of available dispute resolution methods, including mediation, conciliation, and (increasingly common in international construction disputes) determination by dispute review boards or expert panels, before focusing specifically on arbitration. The book then looks in detail at all aspects of arbitration, from commencement of proceedings, through preparation and collection of the evidence necessary in complex construction cases, to common procedural issues, the conduct of the hearing, the effect of the award, challenges to it and its enforcement.
Specific valuable features include the following:
As an easy-to-use resource for both general counsel and the lawyers in private practice, this book has no peers. It has proved to be of particular value to commercial contract negotiators and corporate counsel who may have many years of experience but have not had to live through a construction dispute or manage a construction contract during the life of a project. Lawyers in private practice embarking on a construction dispute for the first time will also find this book of value, as will students of dispute resolution.
