"Now in a fully updated third edition, The Law of Construction Disputes is a leading source of authoritative and detailed information on the whole area of construction law including contracts and their performance, third parties, pursuing claims and dispute resolution. It covers the construction dispute process by analysing the main areas from which disputes arise, up to date case law, and how to effectively deal with construction project disputes once they have arisen. Now including references to the new FIDIC contracts, which were released in 2017, this edition expands on advanced practitioner issues, as well as the emerging law of construction disputes on an international basis and gives the practitioner all the case law needed in one concise volume. The book examines the methods and methodology of construction law, not only for a common law context, but also under other legal systems. Readers will be guided through the various international contract formats governing construction, alongside applicable case law. Additionally, they will be shown the correct contract provisions and forms used to prevent disputes from escalating in order to reach successful conclusions without litigation. Including expert advice and many relevant reference materials, this book is an extremely helpful guide to legal practitioners and construction professionals"-- Provided by publisher.
