WELCOME MESSAGE

Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of the Construction Claims and ADR Conference 2021, it is my pleasure to invite all lawyers, consultants, arbitrators, academicians, contractors, industries practitioners, students and all those who are interested in this subject from all over the world to attend the Conference.

The Conference is the first of its kind in many ways. Firstly, it is a brainchild of the strategic collaboration between Legal Plus (event organiser on legal topic) and L2 i-CON (professional platform for legal digitalisation and virtual event hosting). Secondly, it is a 12-hour marathon virtual event. And thirdly, it is a virtual event which allows everyone to participate from anywhere and at anytime.

The Conference covers a range of fundamental issues of construction claims and alternative dispute resolution and we have worked very hard to bring together a panel of moderators and speakers who are the cream of the crop of their respective fields. This is a Conference anyone interested in construction claims and ADR should not miss. 

No doubt, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has created many new challenges for us but I think we must stay resilient to continue our professional advancements with continuing learning and sharing of knowledge. Apart from insight and knowledge sharing, the Conference will launch the ‘Caring is Sharing 2.0’, a charitable initiative that I personally proud to be part of.

Lastly, I look forward to welcome you to this exciting and meaningful ‘Construction Claims and ADR Conference 2021’ and I hope the Conference will be of professional and personal benefit to all of us. See you, virtually, on 23rd July 2021.

Yours sincerely,
YABhg Tan Sri James Foong

WHAT IS THE CONFERENCE ABOUT?

The construction industry is full of conflicts and dispute. This is not surprising given the vast number of trades involved in the construction chain (and many more connected with them), and the complexity, constraints and limitations involved in or affecting the construction works. Too often, construction claims are a result of entrenched positions, lack of communication, clashes of ego and mismanagement of various issues in construction contracts. More and more of these conflicts and claims ended up in Courts, or alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) processes, and as a result, more and more money are being spent on either litigation or ADR process. These could be avoided with better management skills or properly designed mechanism.

The Construction Claims & ADR Conference 2021 has assembled a line of distinguished moderators and speakers to discuss and share with our audience their views on various recent and interesting topics affecting the construction industry.
