PT / Construction Law & Arbitration – التحكيم في المنازعات الهندسية و المقاولات / Construction Law & Arbitration
The construction industry has a complex range of procedures, often with large financial outlay, long in duration and involvement of multiple stakeholders that characterize most projects. These features make the industry highly prone to disputes, which could undermine the viability and economic benefits of a project unless the disputes are resolved quickly and in an efficient manner. According to a recent report on Global Construction Disputes (2016) by ACADIS, almost 33% of construction-related joint ventures in the Middle East resulted in disputes with arbitration being the most common dispute resolution method after negotiation.
Construction Law is very important in the United Arab Emirates. Attendees of this course will examine ways to help avoid future disputes by drafting good construction law contracts and conducting improved administrative processes in the delivery of contracts and projects. This course also enables students to familiarise themselves with the new United Arab Emirates Arbitration Law as well as any significant changes in the law.
In light of the above, BUiD is organising a two-day training course on construction law and arbitration aimed at providing participants with the key legal aspects of construction law and arbitration as one of the preferred method of resolving construction disputes.
Since many construction relationships result in disputes, it is imperative for the parties and their advisers to acquaint themselves with the legal nature of construction contracts and the factors that cause disputes and how to resolve such disputes in an amicable manner, including through arbitration. Delegates will gain a comprehensive grounding in the key areas of construction law and arbitration as the main method of resolving construction disputes.
