Global trends in construction dispute resolution

Across the diverse range of political and legal landscapes, it is increasingly pivotal that construction contractors and project stakeholders understand the context in which any dispute over legal, commercial or technical matters will be fought in order to minimise risks and ensure project success.

Focusing on regional and global infrastructure market trends, the Clyde & Co 'global guide to construction dispute resolution' highlights these trends and discusses the similarities, differences and unique trends faced by the international construction industry on a region by region basis. It is intended to provide an overview of the basics of each region for senior executives, in-house counsel and construction professionals alike, as well as our view on what the future holds.

Key themes covered in the guide include:

  • The key causes of disputes in the infrastructure sector globally including cost overruns, scope changes and payment disputes
  • The role of expert witnesses and their impact on the success or failure of claims
  • Local market nuances and preferred methods for construction dispute resolution in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.
