About this Seminar:
The exponential increase in infrastructure projects spending in Asia points towards a rising trend for larger and more complex disputes in the sector. The Singapore dispute resolution ecosystem allows for customising modes of dispute resolution to suit the needs of a project. In this regard, the Singapore Infrastructure Dispute-Management Protocol (SIDP) is intended to proactively manage differences to prevent them from escalating into disputes, and minimise the risks of time and cost overruns. Parties will from the start of the project appoint a Dispute Board comprising up to three neutral professionals who are experts in relevant fields such as engineering, quantity surveying and law. The Dispute Board follows the project from start to finish and proactively help to manage issues that may arise, through a range of customised dispute avoidance and resolution processes.
