Atkin Chambers holds legal symposium on construction and infrastructure project law in Dubai

9th Mar 2016

The members of Atkin Chambers hosted a legal symposium on construction and infrastructure project law to mark the publication of the new edition of Hudson’s Building and Engineering Contracts, 13th Edition at the Ritz Carlton DIFC in Dubai on 9 March 2016.

Members of Atkin Chambers in London, including Nicholas Dennys QC, Nicholas Baatz QC, Robert Clay and Serena Cheng, along with local panel members, addressed a range of relevant legal issues affecting major infrastructure and energy projects, including:

  • Hudson – the challenges in updating a book; building a team; delivery and integration; maintaining the authorial voice; coverage and scope.
  • Current topics of interest including termination; notification of claims; allocation of design risk.
  • A panel discussion on dispute resolution covering challenges to the jurisdiction of tribunals; the role of alternative dispute resolution; the use of opinion evidence and the role of experts in UAE; the enforcement of arbitral awards.

Hudson is regarded by many as the leading reference on Construction Law. The new book, coming five years after the 12th edition, has been brought up-to-date by an editorial panel comprising leading practitioners at Atkin Chambers, an internationally-renowned set of construction law barristers. The supplements to this edition will be published annually.

Hudson has always had a strong international element to its contents, comparing and commenting upon legal developments in numerous jurisdictions, including those in the Middle East.
