Hill to address claims settlement in Saudi Arabia
Experts from Hill International will examine claim settlement issues in Saudi Arabia’s construction market at a free seminar in Al Khobar
Hill International plans to address claim settlement issues in Saudi Arabia’s construction sector.
The dispute resolution firm will host a free-to-attend seminar in Al Khobar on 13 January, 2016. Industry experts will use the event to examine the key aspects and potential pitfalls associated with identifying, preparing, and settling claims in the Kingdom.
Speakers will include: Hill International’s senior vice president, Benjamin Highfield; vice president and country manager – KSA; Haroon Niazi, vice president, Tim Whealy; and managing consultant, Nader Emile.
Commenting on the value of effective claim settlement in the Kingdom, Highfield told Construction Week: “In a time of falling liquidity in the Saudi market, careful management of commercial and contractual issues has never been more importance.
“Rewards lie in due diligence, forensic control of programme and cost, and informed decision making based on the contract, the law, and the culture of one’s business partners. Saudi remains a land of great opportunity, but only to the educated and informed decision maker,” he explained.
Niazi added: “The seminar will provide valuable insight into some of these key issues and provide practical tips for ensuring effective risk management to assist with the commercial success of the project. We shall focus on some of the key changes being seen in the market and its potential effect on any project.
“The seminar will benefit all of those involved within the lifecycle of a construction project, and shall also provide delegates with the opportunity to pose questions to the speakers,” he concluded.
Topics to be addressed during the one-day event will include claims techniques, risk mitigation, EOT claim preparation, and the administration of Aramco contracts.
The seminar will take place at Crowne Plaza, Al Khobar. Registration for the event is free.
