We have previously reported (here) on a recent spate of court decisions in several jurisdictions which examined contractual clauses providing for the use of Dispute Boards as a dispute resolution procedure.

On Thursday 12 March 2015, at 9.00am (GMT), Mark Lloyd-Williams and David Nitek, Partners in our Construction and Engineering team in London, will deliver a webinar on ‘Making the best use of Dispute Boards‘.

Dispute Boards offer great flexibility – they may be appointed either as and when disputes arise, or for the life of a project; and can give either a (temporarily) binding decision, or a non-binding recommendation.  The webinar discussion will consider the circumstances in which Dispute Boards can add value to projects (with a focus on construction and engineering projects), techniques for maximising the advantages they can offer and the enforcement of Dispute Board decisions that are binding.

This event is part of our series of “Soundbite” webinars,  designed to update Herbert Smith Freehills LLP clients and contacts on recent developments without having to leave their desks. Once you have registered, the webinar can be accessed “live”, with a facility to send in questions to the speakers in real time, or you can listen to a recording after the event. The webinars, both live and archived, also qualify for one CPD point.

If you would like to register for the webinar, or to obtain a link to the archived version, please contact Jane Webber.
