Breakfast Briefing: Construction Disputes Update

King & Spalding LLP cordially invites you to attend a breakfast briefing on new developments in construction dispute resolution, both in the UAE and further afield.

Topics will include a consideration of some of the latest cases to be decided, covering substantive matters of construction law including liquidated damages, time bars, assessment of quantum, expert evidence and sovereign immunity. The change in law imposing criminal liability on partial arbitrators and experts will be touched upon.

We will also examine some of the recent procedural developments in the UAE’s courts with particular focus on the DIFC and ADGM courts and their approach to enforcement of court judgments and arbitral awards. The impact on the DIFC court’s jurisdiction of recent decisions of the Joint Judicial Committee will also be discussed.

This event will provide clients with a valuable update on key developments in construction dispute resolution and the enforcement of judgments and decisions.
