Project Execution: Jurisdictions of interest when defending calls against demand guarantees


When a call on a demand guarantee (or “on demand bond”) is anticipated or in fact made, which jurisdictions are of interest to those trying to defend the call.  The panellists will consider such jurisdictions and judgments issued by their courts.  They will consider if there are preferred jurisdictions for those trying to defend calls against demand guarantees.
