Virtual, IST hours


Bird & Bird, HKA and Khaitan & Co, supported by ICC, are pleased to invite you to a virtual panel discussion focussed on exploring the best avenues for resolving construction disputes in the Indian context.

Comprising experts in the real estate and construction space across in-house legal, private practice and consultancy roles, moderated by a member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the panel will take you into an in-depth discussion on avenues that parties can explore, and often leave un-explored, to efficiently resolve disputes – both during the life-cycle of a construction project and after its completion.

The panel will also discuss issues that are often seen disputed between the employer, contractor, and sub-contractors – under different forms of standard construction contracts, and look at dispute resolution / adjudication processes for international projects, where Indian companies may be involved as contractor or sub-contractor.

As we would like to tailor the content of this session to ensure that the panel discussion is as relevant to you as possible, please feel free to send in your questions via the registration link. To preserve the interactive element, you will still be able to ask questions during the forum itself through a chat box function. We will endeavour to address as many questions from participants as time permits.
