Construction Arbitration Podcast Series Episode 4: Preparing your case

We are pleased to share the fourth episode in our Construction Arbitration podcast series, in which we look at the importance of case preparation, both at the outset of a case and beyond.

In this episode James Doe (Partner, UK Head of Construction & Infrastructure Disputes), Maguelonne de Brugiere (Senior Associate, International Arbitration) and Olivia Liang (Associate, Construction & Infrastructure Disputes) discuss the initial preparation of the case, on-going strategy considerations throughout the life of the arbitration and preparation for the hearing. They cover a wide range of key issues, including evaluating claims and substantiating them, the context of voluminous documentary evidence, multi-party and multi-contract issues, enforcement considerations and advocacy.

You can listen to this episode here.
