As owners and contractors alike become more sophisticated, the “usual suspects” still plague every project from a small apartment complex to a large oil and gas mega project. Those ubiquitous claims often are unable to be resolved during the project’s life.

This presentation will give both owners and contractors effective tools and methodologies to help avoid project disputes and ensure any claims that are made get resolved successfully during the project instead of allowed to fester and turn into a litigation nightmare.

The presentation covers:

• Typical project disputes that end up in arbitration
• Best practices in order to avoid and resolve project disputes
• Best practices to mitigate project risks
• Best practices in arbitration
