Construction of plants, oil and gas facilities, roads, ports and other infrastructure frequently gives rise to complex disputes involving owners/operators, contractors, subcontractors, governmental entities and/or other stakeholders. The construction and engineering industries have long favored “alternative” means to resolve these disputes, such as adjudication, expert determination, mediation, dispute settlement boards and arbitration.
Our firm has broad experience in advising clients on all aspects of large engineering, procurement and construction projects from bidding processes to financing, financial support arrangements, concession contracts, joint ventures, construction contracts, subcontracts, technology supply and license agreements, technical service agreements, project management agreements, operational management agreements and contract administration.
We bring this experience to bear by helping our clients prevent and resolve disputes arising from the design, engineering, construction and operation of projects undertaken throughout the world. In particular, our arbitration group represents international civil works and plant contractors, governmental entities, private owners and operators of plants and oil and gas facilities, as well as financial institutions in large, multi-claim and/or delay and disruption cases.
