ICC-FIDIC Conference To Be Held in Istanbul
With the Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge and the Eurasia Tunnel currently underway at the Bosphorus and a number of gas pipeline projects in progress throughout the country, Istanbul is a natural choice for this year’s conference venue.
In 2014, the region accounted for 27% of ICC’s construction cases. “Lawyers and engineers from different backgrounds and cultures often approach construction contracts and related disputes in different ways. This top-level conference on construction and dispute resolution in Istanbul will explore and debate these differences and have presentations on best contract practices and optimal solutions to current construction problems and disputes. This conference is part of the continuing effort of the ICC and FIDIC to promote better construction and more efficient dispute resolution around the world,” said Christopher Seppala ,Co-chair of the event, Partner, White & Case LLP, France; FIDIC’s Observer, ICC International Court of Arbitration; Member, ICC Institute of World Business Law; Legal Advisor, FIDIC Contracts Committee, FIDIC.
