Overview:

Construction claims, which typically arise from disagreements, failed obligations, or violations on construction contracts, can be challenging and time-consuming. Failure to effectively manage and resolve such disputes can have a profound effect on a project’s lifecycle and deter good relationship between parties.

In order to reduce the risk of claims and underlying pitfalls, it is essential to have an in-depth understanding of the contract as well as the potential dispute causations. All parties must be proactive in utilizing effective risk mitigation program and dispute resolution methods to avoid further complexities.

In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of construction disputes. Speakers will dig deeper as they present usual causes of disputes and offer risk mitigation techniques and best practices in handling construction disputes.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Construction Disputes: Trends and Statistics
  • Warning Signs of Potential Construction Claims
  • Mitigating the Possibility of Disputes
  • Dispute Resolution Clauses and Methodologies
  • Best Arbitration Practices
