    • LAGOS, Nigeria

    Conflicts in construction projects cause delays, escalate costs and frustrate project outcomes. New methods such as dispute avoidance are being developed to reduce the potential for conflicts and their impact on project schedules. It has become important for project consultants, contractors, project managers and dispute practitioners to become skilled in these new methods.

    This first Regional Training Workshop on Dispute Management in Africa Infrastructure Projects will be delivered by a faculty of experts in the fields of construction, project management, dispute management and dispute resolution. The experts 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. Participants will benefit from cutting edge insights on:

    • new methods and processes for avoiding disputes, managing claims and resolving disputes
    • dispute avoidance and adjudication under the 2017 edition of the FIDIC contracts.

    This training workshop is designed for contract administrators, project managers and legal advisers in:

    • Oil and Gas Exploration & Production companies which engage Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors in E&P projects;
    • EPC, BOT and other PPP Concession companies
    • Government agencies having ownership or oversight of infrastructure projects
    • Development Banks

    The training is also useful for professionals involved in construction and infrastructure projects, including consulting engineers, architects, quantity surveyors, arbitrators, adjudicators, mediators and construction law firms. 

    The workshop is a collaborative effort of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce International Arbitration Centre (LACIAC) and the Association for Consulting Engineering in Nigeria (ACEN), as well as the international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and the Nigerian firms, Aluko & Oyebode, Funmi Roberts & Co and Babalakin & Co.    

    We look forward to welcoming your delegates to the workshop. We urge that you register your delegates promptly as there are limited spaces available for the training.
