We are proud to sponsor the first Regional Training Workshop on Dispute Management in Africa Infrastructure Projects that was held in Lagos, Nigeria on Friday, 18 January 2019.
The workshop was collaboratively executed by the firm of Aluko & Oyebode in conjunction with the Lagos Chamber of Commerce International Arbitration Centre (LACIAC), the Association for Consulting Engineering in Nigeria (ACE) – a member of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), as well as the international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and two other Nigerian law firms.
Participants of the workshop benefited from the innovative insights on new methods and processes for avoiding disputes, managing claims and resolving disputes under the 2017 edition of the FIDIC contracts. Also, the training covered topical subjects such as the allocation and balancing of risks, contract administration and the standby Dispute Avoidance and Adjudication Board introduced in the 2017 edition of FIDIC contracts.
The team of experts at the workshop draw on several years of experience working and advising on contract administration, project management, claims management and dispute resolution across different sectors, including oil and gas installations, road, rail, ports and power projects.
