Innovation and Change – Payments and Dispute Resolution in Construction Contracts 

Construction is risky business. Globally the average construction dispute costs $43.4million. But in the Middle East these costs almost double to an average of $91million.


With risks this high, you will certainly be doing everything in your power to avoid costly and disruptive disputes. This event will give you a helping hand. Some of the world’s experts in construction and the law are joining forces for a Masterclass in Dubai this April. This event will teach you how to prepare and manage your projects to minimise the risk of disputes.


You will have the opportunity to learn and network with your peers and a host of expert speakers.
