Over the past few decades, globalisation has meant that companies are involved more than ever with projects around the world. When disputes arise, more often than not, contracts dictate dispute resolution is taken to international arbitration in order to avoid local procedures in one location. Any case that is considered “arbitrable” can be brought to international arbitration, and so as a result a number of different types of disputes are constantly arising. Among them, commercial disputes are the most common. In many cases, these commercial disputes involve construction of projects in other locations around the world or supply of products.
Whether the case in question is a dispute regarding compliance with international regulations or any other dispute involving the law in multiple jurisdiction, it is necessary for legislators and solicitors to have an expert’s understanding of the engineering principals involved in the case, as well as the standards that govern the contract and the work delivered.
CEERISK experts provides specialist review and expert opinions to specialist arbitration tribunals across a number of different sectors. Our experts have been instructed in arbitration disputes involving construction projects in oil & gas, power and energy (including renewable energy) sectors.
