The report, which is edited and published under Jus Connect, is part of a series of industry-focused arbitration reports. Jus Mundi’s comprehensive access to an international database of arbitrations allows the firm to provide unmatched insights into arbitration trends whilst respecting the essential confidential nature of their proceedings.

Franco, an industry veteran in project management, quantum, and delay analysis, and dispute resolution, was extremely pleased to contribute an article titled Multi-Disciplinary Teams and the Co-ordinating Expert – Useful Developments in International Construction Disputes? which featured under the chapter Laying the Foundation: Global Insights on Construction Projects and Disputes.

“It has been a privilege to contribute to Jus Mundi’s report on construction arbitration. I hope that my brief review of trends in the roles for experts, their duties, the standards expected of them, and potential areas of further development and improvement in practice and procedure in the international construction disputes arena proves valuable to readers.”

Franco’s article complements the wider context of the report’s findings, which includes in-depth global and regional construction perspectives from leading lawyers, arbitrators, experts, institutions, and in-house counsel; a list of major construction arbitration cases filed between 2022-2023, and a shortlist of the top construction companies in the world and their known lead in-house counsel.
