Global Infrastructure Webinar Series: The impact of COVID 19 on Construction Arbitration: efficiency at the expense of fairness?

Join us along with our specially invited guest speakers including Professor Loukas Mistelis, QMUL and Ziva Filipic, ICC to gain practical insights on the impact that COVID-19 is having on arbitration proceedings for international construction projects.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The shift in landscape since the QMUL-Pinsent Masons Survey was published in November 2019 - what a difference a few months makes
  • The Covid crisis and fall in oil price – will we see more arbitrations in the construction sector?
  • The need to embrace technology, including the use of remote hearings
  • More reliance on interim measures to endeavour to resolve arbitrations at an earlier stage.
  • Greater uptake of third party funding when cashflow is tight

Chaired by Jason Hambury.
