IBA Annual Conference Sydney 2017
8 Oct - 13 Oct 2017
Room C3.6, Convention Centre, Level 3
Civil and common law approaches to contract interpretation: a comparison – and do good faith obligations make any difference?
Wednesday 11 October (0930 - 1230)
International Construction Projects Committee
Drafters of complex construction contracts (and other commercial agreements) often insert clauses that shift risks from one party to another, and this panel will explore different ways in which some of these clauses are enforced in common law and civil law jurisdictions. Examples include, but are not limited to, clauses relating to changes, delays, differing site conditions, claim notice and indemnity. The session will be useful both to construction practitioners and anyone drafting or arbitrating/litigating complex commercial contracts in the global marketplace.
