One of the key challenges that contractors involved in large, international construction projects face is to meet their commercial objectives of executing on time and on budget, without becoming embroiled in costly disputes.

This seminar, which is sponsored jointly by Baker McKenzie and FTI Consulting, will address how contractors on such projects can more effectively and proactively manage claim procedures with project employers.

Topics covered will include:

  • Contract Administration: Common Challenges and Problems: how contractors can better strategise at the outset of a project and identify, document, substantiate, and monitor claims during the execution phase, as well as highlight pitfalls contractors face if they fail to do so.
  • Managing Claims Effectively: How more effective claim management can help contractors avoid or better handle formal disputes.
  • Practical tips in managing claims: How effective claim preparation can help contractors avoid future disputes through preparation of clear, well-reasoned, substantiated, and realistic claim submissions.

This information will also assist contractors when dealing with claims from subcontractors. After introducing the subjects, the speakers will provide advice on issues that need to be addressed and offer practical, first-hand experience from previous projects.
