Chantal-Aimée Doerries QC will speak at the American Arbitration Association® (AAA)/ International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) 2019 National Construction Conference to be held in Miami on 4 April, 2019.
Chantal will speak on ‘International Construction Mega-Projects – Understanding the Issues, Challenges, Cultural Differences and Conflict Management Options’. This session will explore the various issues and challenges when the project’s arbitration and mediations are international. The cultural impact on the process when there is the interplay between the common law and civil law traditions. How the exchange of information may be limited with parties from civil law jurisdictions where “Discovery” is not common and which is limited in the ICDR’s Arbitration Rules consistent with international arbitration practice. Other areas where the parties’ expectations may differ include witness examination, experts, written submissions, privilege concerns and amongst others the allocation of costs. Challenges may also arise when dealing with language and logistical issues and mediating with foreign parties.
The 2019 American Arbitration Association® Construction Conference will focus on the growing complexities of construction projects, managing technological advances and how to adapt your dispute resolution strategies to bring projects in on time and on budget.
Experts in the field will discuss:
• EOT Clauses and Presenting the Complex Delay Claim in Arbitration;
• Techniques for Resolving Disputes on the Job;
• Presenting Evidence on Damages;
• New Technology and what it means to your construction project;
• Understanding the Issues and Challenges of International Projects;
• And more…
Attendees will leave with techniques and best practices to help them adapt their dispute resolution strategies for today’s complex construction projects.
