Construction Arbitration

“A natural choice for big-ticket, international infrastructure disputes.” (Legal 500)

The Construction Team’s recognition as the Legal 500 2016 ‘Construction and Energy Set of the year’ reflects members’ established international presence, with practitioners regularly engaged in disputes under ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL as well as region-specific rules. Appearing in the leading directory ‘Chambers and Partners Global’, members of the Construction Team are particularly noted for their “work concerning the Caribbean and the Middle East”.

Recent work has seen practitioners dealing with a broad spread of international work, including an M&E dispute in respect of an offshore oil platform in Saudi Arabian waters, three government arbitrations arising out of the refurbishment and development of a military base and the construction of a nuclear berthing facility, a commercial dispute over a joint venture for photovoltaic power production in Turkey, payment disputes arising out of a project spanning several CIS states, delay and disruption claims for various large developers and contractors in the UAE and other Gulf regions, and a dispute over the dismantling and relocation of a chemical plant from France to India.

Hardwicke’s international construction expertise is reflected by the continued success of Construction All Risks Insurance (now in its Second Edition), which has received international acclaim as the leading text on the subject, and has been adopted by practitioners and Tribunals around the Globe.

Several members of chambers are also arbitrators.
