You May Need to Rely on Arbitration—Learn How It Has Changed

Today, more firms than ever are hopping borders to jump in on lucrative and reputation-earning construction projects. But sometimes, the projects don’t go as planned. Disputes on construction projects have become larger, more complicated, and more common. While most firms prefer to avoid arbitration, there are key trends you need to be aware of, especially when it comes to international disagreements and disputes.

In this webinar, arbitration and construction pros Israel Almovodar and James G. Zack, Jr. will explain the 28 global arbitral institutions, the three which dominate the field, the two favored seats of arbitration, and the regional centers which are gaining in popularity. They will also point out a key new fact—that international arbitration is no longer faster or cheaper than litigation.
