King & Spalding Tokyo invites you to join the next installment of its Global Construction Disputes Tokyo Seminar series – “Show Me The Money”.
Our keynote speaker will be Mike Stenglein, a lead partner in King & Spalding’s Engineering & Construction Practice, leader of our Contracts and Business Torts group and Managing Partner of our Austin office. Amongst many construction disputes, he has recently been involved in an ICC arbitration concerning of the largest construction projects in South America; and an LCIA arbitration arising from a USD 1 billion construction project in Iraq.
Mike brings accounting experience to his representation of corporations, and previously worked for five years as a Certified Public Accountant with Coopers & Lybrand. With this experience to hand, the Tokyo seminar will focus on proving damages when complex construction failures occur. Mike will provide a walkthrough of the main methods of quantifying and substantiating losses in complex construction projects, looking in particular at approaches to quantifying delay and productivity impacts, and also the various approaches that may be taken where substantiating actual costs from the ground up proves difficult.
Chris Bailey (Partner) and Oliver McEntee (Associate) of our Tokyo Disputes team will provide a regional perspective on recovering damages in the construction sector here in Asia. In particular, they will look at ways of managing and documenting projects from the outset so as to be geared up for any claim that may arise, as well as explaining the practical steps to be taken in a dispute scenario.
Speakers will give presentations in English without simultaneous translation to Japanese.
