Conference on Construction Risk Analysis

On June 1st, I was invited to participate in the next event of the Contech Group’sGrandes rencontres program on the theme ofl’Risk analysis in contruction.

The subject of the conference I will be giving, together withMe Olivier Kott, eminent Ogilvy Renault construction law attorney, will focus on the contract as the main tool for sharing and transferring the risks associated with the execution of the contract. A construction project.

It goes without saying that I will pay particular attention to the dispute settlement clauses, which are very often ignored by the parties whose main focus is mainly on the multitude of other provisions directly related to the most efficient execution possible. of the project.

These clauses must provide for quick and efficient mechanisms for the “real-time” settlement of disputes, ie during the execution of works, in order to avoid the creation of a conflict environment highly damaging to the success of a dispute. project.

The guide published by the American Association of Arbitration on these different mechanisms is still, in my opinion, the reference in this area.
