International Construction Arbitration Seminar

King & Spalding is pleased to invite you to a seminar on “Arbitrating International Construction Disputes in the Age of ‘Build, Build, Build.’”  As the Philippine economy continues to expand and the government embarks on an ambitious USD 180 billion infrastructure program, the Philippine construction and infrastructure sectors are at the cusp of unprecedented growth. Those companies can increasingly find themselves across the table from or working with foreign entities, or in the middle of complex construction projects, exposing them to significant legal and commercial risks within and beyond Philippine shores.

Our team of arbitration and construction lawyers will provide first-hand insight into the use of international arbitration in resolving construction disputes, and share practical tips on minimizing risks in large-scale, complex construction projects.
