The Guide to Construction Arbitration, 4th Edition
Edited by the academics who run a course on construction contracts and arbitration at the School of International Arbitration, Global Arbitration Review’s The Guide to Construction Arbitration brings together both substantive and procedural sides of the subject in one volume. Across four parts, it moves from explaining the mechanics of FIDIC contracts and particular procedural questions that arise at the disputes stage, to how to organise an effective arbitration, before ending with a section on the specifics of certain contracts and of key countries and regions. It has been written by leaders in the field from both the civil and common law worlds and other relevant professions.
This fourth edition is fully up to date with the new FIDIC suites, and includes chapters on expert witnesses, claims resolution, dispute boards, ADR, agreements to arbitrate, investment treaty arbitration and Brazil. It is a must-have for anyone seeking to improve their understanding of construction disputes or construction law.
The Guide is split into four parts:
- International Construction Contracts
- Dispute Resolution for Construction Disputes
- Select Topics on Construction Arbitration
- Regional Construction Arbitration
“The Guide to Construction Arbitration is designed to appeal to different audiences. […] For example, in-house lawyers who may be experienced in negotiating and drafting construction contracts but not in running disputes arising from them, or construction professionals who may have experience in managing construction projects but may lack experience in the conduct of construction arbitration […]. Lawyers in private practice who are familiar with arbitration, but lack experience in construction will also benefit. Last but not least, students who study construction arbitration will find it to be a helpful source of information.” Editors Stavros Brekoulakis and David Brynmor Thomas: Introduction
