Webinar

ICC Commission Report series - Identifying and resolving issues in dispute

About the webinar series on the ICC Commission Report, Construction Industry Arbitrations Recommended Tools and Techniques for Effective Management

Pinsent Masons MPillay LLP and the International Chamber of Commerce invite you to attend our second in our seminar series to review best international practice in the conduct of international construction arbitrations.

This second seminar, now in webinar format, shares practical pointers in identifying and dealing with issues in dispute in international construction arbitrations. The significance of the Terms of Reference in ICC arbitrations and how useful it is in practice and setting the stage right with the first arbitration procedural order will also be explored. Perspectives will be shared on adoption of soft law in the first procedural order and the importance of the seat of arbitration. 

For more than two decades, the ICC's think tank and rule making body, the Commission on Arbitration and ADR, has been giving special attention to best practice in the management of construction industry arbitrations under the auspices of the ICC Rules of Arbitration. The ICC Commission Report, Construction Industry Arbitrations Recommended Tools and Techniques for Effective Management is a 2019 update of the first edition of the Final Report on Construction Industry Arbitrations published in 2001, reflecting both the various modifications made by the ICC Rules of Arbitration (as revised in 2017) and developments in the practice of arbitration in construction disputes. Thus it gives contemporary guidance on a range of tools and techniques for use in successfully managing construction arbitrations in the present day.

This seminar series provides a review of the techniques and tools flowing from the 2019 Report, as currently practiced in well managed international construction arbitrations, sharing experiences from the perspective of counsel, arbitrators and the ICC Court of Arbitration as to what works, when and how. Insights will be shared from Nicholas Brown and Yong Neng Chan's publication on the 2019 Report in the prestigious International Construction Law Review ([2019] Pt. 4, p. 455).
