HKA, in association with leading Japanese law firm Nishimura & Asahi invites you to join us for a discussion on delay and loss in construction and EPC projects.

The session will focus on the causes of delay and loss, especially those arising from engineering and technical problems. Our expert speakers will discuss solutions that you can consider from a technical and legal perspective.

Part 1: An engineering case study – how to prepare claims to recover from losses arising from unforeseen/ unforeseeable ground conditions

Part 2: Understanding contractual procedures on dispute adjudication boards and how to best use delay, quantum and engineering experts to win your case

Please note the webinar will be conducted largely in English, with some sections in Japanese.
