A webinar presented by the IBA International Construction Projects Committee, part of the IBA Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law Section (SEERIL)

Damage, delay, quantum and other construction experts are undisputable key players when it comes to litigating or arbitrating construction disputes. The construction consultancy industry has seen a remarkable growth throughout the years not only in terms of size, volume, and global reach of consultancy firms, but most importantly in terms of specialisation. Hiring the expert with the right skills for a case may enhance, to a significant extent, the chances of a successful outcome. But it takes more than steel and cement to build a bridge.

In this webinar, experts from some of the world’s leading construction consultancy firms, lead by a seasoned construction lawyer and arbitrator, will share their views, knowledge and experience on a number of practical issues such as:

• the role of the expert witness;

• conflict of interests;

• multiple hiring;

• hot-tubbing; and

• managing experts’fees.
