LIDW21: A view from London and India - How dispute avoidance and alternative dispute resolution can keep construction and infrastructure plans on track
LIDW21 Member-hosted event co-hosted with Link Legal and 2 Temple Gardens.
Urbanisation and the increased need for infrastructure has made the construction market one of the main drivers of GDP growth in India. This remains a firm focus notwithstanding the impact of Covid-19.
Join us as we discuss how to address the challenges represented by the seemingly inevitable rise in disputes that will emerge from the construction and infrastructure sector in India in the short to medium term as it grapples with both post pandemic reality as well as trying to realise its potential as a global superpower.
The need to deliver projects on time and on budget will require an approach to dispute avoidance and dispute resolution which is expeditious, cost-effective and prioritises project delivery.
Our panel will focus on strategies to achieve this approach, covering a range of topics including:
- Is it ever too early to start thinking about dispute resolution?
- Using the contract effectively to avoid disputes
- Opportunities and challenges around the use of alternative dispute resolution to resolve complex disputes with a particular focus on Mediation, Adjudication and Arbitration.
The panel of speakers will include:
Rupa Lakha – Partner - Charles Russell Speechlys LLP, London
Atul Sharma – Managing Partner – Link Legal, New Delhi
Martin Harman CBE – Chair International Business - Link Legal
Andrew Miller QC – Barrister, Arbitrator and Mediator - 2 Temple Gardens
Date/Time: Friday 14 May / 11:00 - 12:00 BST
