TRAINING INVITATION: Construction Claims & Disputes Management on 13 - 14 August 2018

The UAE Contractors Association, in partnership with SELEM DMCC and American University in Dubai – Engineering College, would like to invite you to register for the Training Course: Construction Claims & Dispute Resolution Management (including Delay Analysis Calculation Workshop) scheduled on 5th – 6th of August 2018, 9:00AM to 5:00PM.

Course Overview:

Two days of specialized instruction on avoiding, recognizing, preparing, and resolving claims and disputes arising out of construction contracts. This course concentrates on all types and aspects of construction claims. The course objective is to help you avoid and resolve construction claims and disputes. It is an intensely practical program. The course begins by defining the claims and their types. It then concentrates on preparation of construction claims and describing the link between claims and the contract. You will explore nonjudicial routes to resolving disputes, beginning with negotiation and progressing through mediation and arbitration, with brief examinations of processes such as mini-trials, mediation and arbitration, and summary jury trials. Critical to the course's success is the recognition that, unlike general commercial disputes, construction controversies are special, requiring for their efficient disposition, a unique blend of legal knowledge, technical understanding, project management comprehension and experience.

Who should Attend:

This course is meant for everyone – clients/owners, government officers, contractors, consultants, project managers, commercial managers, project planners, subcontractors & suppliers, lenders, and lawyers. In its approach, this course plays even-handed consideration of the problems of all.
