Shamila Neelakandan, Partner, Construction Claims and Experts Services Lead, Asia Pacific, Benjamin Highfield, Regional CEO of Asia Pacific, and the Singapore team, invite you to hear from our panel of HKA experts, who will discuss how you can get the most from your experts – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Our panellists have extensive knowledge and experience across engineering, quantum, delay and damages. They will exchange stories of their experiences and lessons learned from past projects and hearings within the context of dispute resolution.

Topics include: 

  • Risks in the Design and Construct method for delivering construction projects and how to minimise disputes
  • Failure to address localised delay and quantum effects
  • Early expert engagement
  • AI as a disruptor in the disputes world
  • The difference between commercial damages, quantum experts and accounting experts
  • The fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on large infrastructure projects.

Alongside our local experts, we’ll also be joined by eminent experts Michael Tonkin, acting as panel moderator, and Derek Nelson, who will summarise the panel discussion and his conclusions on the topics discussed.

This will be an informative and insightful discussion, followed by a Q&A session where we invite guests to ask their burning questions. 

After the formalities, we invite you to mingle and chat with our speakers and the wider team about the presentation and whether Verstappen will win another Grand Prix! Refreshments and food will be served.
