Rupert Choat co-chairs IBA construction projects conference in Brussels


Brussels, Belgium

Rupert Choat co-chaired the International Bar Association’s two-day “6th Construction Projects from Conception to Completion Conference” in Brussels, Belgium from 14 September 2017.

The conference was co-presented by the IBA International Construction Projects Committee of the Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law Section (SEERIL) and the IBA Young Lawyers’ Committee, supported by the IBA European Regional Forum

Topics included:

  • Are FIDIC forms worth their popularity?
  • Drafting extension of time clauses: specifying delay methodologies and providing for “concurrency”.
  • The importance of the applicable law. How far do lawyers from “civil” and “common” law backgrounds view the same construction law issues differently?
  • Assessing disruption: different methods and do they matter?
  • ‘My top tips for the best awards’.
  • Solving disputes under different arbitration rules: does it matter and why? Is there a “best choice”?
