This is the opportunity to join the audience for a “Question Time” session

A panel of lawyers and arbitrators will ask and answer a range of questions prompted by the theme building on success and avoiding pitfalls in international infrastructure projects. Issues to be debated include:

  • How to align the participant’s interests: language, communication and records.
  • Is your agreement worth the paper it’s not written on: letters of intent and other informal agreements
  • Is there scope for the “good faith” doctrine in construction contracts?
  • Are you secured: when can demand on a performance bond not be honoured?
  • What is the benefit of multi-tiered dispute resolution clauses?
  • Are you on shaky ground: the pitfalls in contracting for and dealing with unforeseen ground conditions
  • How to win at arbitration: documents, witnesses, experts and advocates.

The audience will be encouraged to ask questions of the Panel and if you would like to submit your question beforehand please email it to and
