 In the daily operations of a construction project, it is common to encounter difficult situations leading to different parties expressing conflicting views. 


Arbitration is one of the most commonly used means in resolving construction disputes. Given the many advantages promoted about arbitration, what are the risks that are involved in construction arbitration?


This seminar will help attendees identify the risks of construction arbitration, and discuss the best practice in the management of these risks at various stages so that time and costs can be saved when disputes arise.
