On 17th November 2022 at 11am, we are holding a book launch for ‘FIDIC Contracts in Europe, A Practical Guide to Application’ at the International Dispute Resolution Centre in London.
The book offers practical advice on applying FIDIC contracts in 16 jurisdictions in Europe. Each chapter provides an invaluable introduction to the law and construction industry in each country, outlining the local legal landscape and the unique features of the region’s construction industry.
For those looking to enter different European construction markets, this book is a crucial guide on how to effectively do this and explores what you need to know to negotiate the best contract – whether this be FIDIC or others. With so many overlapping contractual concerns within construction’s jurisdictions, the advice is easily transferable and useful for everyone in the construction industry.
Following major delays to project timelines and disruption to the supply chain caused by the pandemic, construction contracts were thoroughly tested, and projects continue to feel the repercussions. The book dedicates a chapter to these issues by exploring the impact of covid-19 on construction projects, that will provide key information for contractors moving forward.
Dr Donald Charrett, who edited the book, will be speaking at the event, and he will be joined by guest speaker Sir Vivian Ramsay, Nicola Davide Romano of Buildip, who contributed a chapter on applying FIDIC contracts in Italy, and Daniel McKiernan of Advokatfirman Vinge, who wrote a chapter on his tips for contracts in Sweden.
Our Director, Bill Barton, will also be speaking at the event, and will be able to share insights into the chapter that he contributed to, exploring FIDIC best practice in England and Wales.
This event is hybrid which means you can join in-person or online, with all attendees receiving a 30% discount code to purchase the book.
It will be an interactive event with the opportunity to ask questions directly to the speakers and book contributors, so don’t hesitate to get involved in the discussion.
