GcilA is a strong believer of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and dispute review boards (DRB), as a method of avoiding lengthy legal proceedings before court. As such, we prefer an amicable solution to possible issues, misunderstandings and disputes that may arise during the life cycle of a project. We also prefer to share our knowledge on the topic with other interested players because we believe that it is through training that a better understanding can be achieved and time-costly and financially harming cases can be avoided.
As such, GcilA’s team has participated in several dispute boards and has aimed at organizing trainings that provide our clients with the basic of ideas of preventing, defusing and resolving disputes in international construction and infrastructure projects. We draft concept notes, guidelines, best practices on the topic and combine them with practical training in order to offer our clients interested in improving their dispute resolution skills. We expose the issues and complications that might arise from a contract, and we offer an in-depth analysis of the issues, how they came to be, how they affect the projects, how they can be circumscribed before they cause irrevocable damages. We then finally propose our clients with different solutions to the dispute.
Some of GcilA’s member firms have already participated and organized several training programs including among others presentations at the International Conference on Investment Arbitration in Damas in December 2009, at the IBA Conference in Cancun in 2001, at the World Bank workshop in Washington D.C. in December 2008, and at numerous other occasions.
