Disruption is currently a hot topic, particularly in light of the pandemic and its effects. Projects have been suspended, productivity and progress have been affected by alternative methods of working on-site and there have been impacts to the supply chain and site labour.

Disruption claims are often perceived as difficult, complex and expensive. Receiving expert advice on the fundamentals can both ease the process and maximise success. 

Held in conjunction with legal practice Freeths, our recent webinar provides an overview of disruption claims in construction and engineering projects in the context of issues being faced by owners and contractors in the Qatar market.

During this webinar, panellists Christopher Soffe, Vice Chairman, Gleeds Americas, Alex Johnson, Partner, Construction and Engineering at Freeths LLP and Kamlesh Roochan, Director, Gleeds Qatar, examine some of the common pitfalls parties experience when making disruption claims, which can restrict the financial compensation that can be recovered. We explore how to make or defend disruption claims, and how to secure and maximise, or avoid additional payments.

Tune in to the recording to discover:

  • Key issues our clients are facing in terms of disruption resulting from the pandemic
  • The difficulties in terms of assessing the value of disruption claims
  • Losses typically claimed by a party in disruption claims
  • What a successful disruption claim looks like in legal terms and how are disruption claims successfully defended
  • What to look for as evidence when assessing the value of disruption claims
