Leading practitioners will guide us through:

  • Differences in contract interpretation
  • Dispute resolution and penalty clauses around the world

  • How to embrace uncertainty and think outside the box
  • Increasing risk mitigation opportunities for a competitive advantage
  • Appreciating the application of technology on projects and in arbitration

This is a unique opportunity to join legal and construction industry professionals in discussing these issues and networking with global leaders in these fields.

The conference will provide an interactive dialogue with live polling questions, opportunities for participation, and working sessions. Connect with peers from North America and around the world.
