ICC Arbitration Forum : International Construction Arbitration

08 Sep 2022

Frankfurt am Main / Online English
10:00am CET

Large construction and engineering projects have long accounted for the largest share of disputes before international arbitration tribunals. Unsurprisingly, the resolution of major construction disputes is entrusted only to arbitrators who have extensive experience with complex arbitration proceedings. And yet there is an increasing criticism of the lack of efficiency: complex proceedings take too long and (therefore) cost too much. Hence, discussions are currently underway on how to adapt the procedural rules in such a way as to make construction arbitration more efficient. This workshop, however, will address the "other side of the coin", i.e. the question of how parties themselves can within the limits of existing arbitration rules and standards increase the efficiency of arbitration proceedings.

About the event series: From May to November 2022, ICC Germany is organising the ICC Arbitration Forum together with the ICC International Court of Arbitration, partners and national and international experts. The Forum brings together experts and an international audience to discuss current issues and pressing questions in international arbitration while providing insights into the daily practice of companies, organizations and academia.
