HKA Partner, Franco Mastrandrea, is one of the panellists in the session ‘prospective vs. retrospective assessments under construction contracts’ at the 7th Biennial Conference on Construction Projects from Conception to Completion, to be held in Berlin from the 31 October – 2 November 2019.

The conference is co-presented by the IBA International Construction Projects Committee of the Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law Section (SEERIL) and the IBA Young Lawyers’ Committee, supported by the IBA European Regional Forum.

Topics include:

  • Defects Liability Periods (and the like): what are the pitfalls?
  • Smart contracts: how might technology disruption change construction contracts as we know them?
  • The importance of the applicable law. How far do lawyers from civil law and common law backgrounds view the same construction law issues differently?
  • Hardship laws in times of uncertainty: when might contractors successfully rely upon such laws?
  • The (in)applicability of liquidated damages for delay and the relevant factors that drive their reduction in many jurisdictions
  • The IBA Rules vs. the Prague Rules in construction arbitrations
  • Arbitrator selection: ethics and considerations
  • Prospective vs. retrospective assessments under construction contracts

HKA is the Associate Conference Sponsor.
