Construction Disputes and Arbitration

We understand the strain any dispute or arbitration matter can cause, it’s why we aim to find a resolution as swiftly as possible.

Our team has practical experience with many forms of complex construction dispute proceedings before the various courts, in the framework of mediation or arbitration procedures and out of court settlements. As a result, our expertise extends to a broad range of issues including variations, defects, insolvencies, cost overruns, project delays, warranties, take-over, hand-over, changing market conditions and unforeseeable circumstances. 

Furthermore, our construction partners regularly act as arbitrators or chairpersons in national and international arbitration cases, ad hoc or under a variety of (international and local) arbitration rules such as ICC, LCIA, NAI and CEPANI. We find this to be of great benefit to our clients as they not only receive a lawyer’s insight, but their ability to neutrally analyse every aspect of the case.

FIDIC 2017: de gewijzigde geschillenregeling

Articles - De FIDIC modelcontracten bevatten een snelle geschillenregeling waarbij partijen één of drie onafhankelijke deskundigen, de zogenaamde Dispute Adjudication Board (DAB), om een bindende beslissing kunnen vragen. Indien een partij zich niet kan vinden in de DAB beslissing, kan vervolgens een arbitrageprocedure worden gestart. Een belangrijk voordeel van een DAB is dat geschillen tussen de Opdrachtgever en de Opdrachtnemer snel kunnen worden beslecht door de DAB. Dit is zowel in het belang van de opdrachtgever als de opdrachtnemer.

Damage due to a defective driveway and the Dutch twenty year limitation period: When does limitation start in case of a continuous event that causes damage?

Short Reads - On 22 March 2019, the Dutch Supreme Court ruled (ECLI:NL:HR:2019:412) that the strict liability for buildings (opstalaansprakelijkheid) is not linked to a specific damaging act but to a damaging condition, as referred to in section 6:174 DCC. Therefore, there is no reason to regard a damaging act as an 'event that caused damage' as referred to in section 3:310 DCC concerning the limitation period for claims for damages.
