This is an online event organised by CIArb’s Egypt Branch, taking place on 30 March 2021, 6.30pm - 8.30pm Cairo time. Please check your local time zone. The event will delve into the debate and controversies that arise from the application of time bar clauses.
The recent introduction of time-barring provisions into construction contracts caused tremendous controversies and were subject to different interpretations, usually contradictory, even within the same legal system. Arbitration tribunals construed the provisions differently and thus issued awards based on different contradictory interpretations of the provisions with the effect that the parties to a contract may not be able to assess their risks when negotiating extension of time and/or monetary claims, more importantly when deciding to refer disputes to arbitration. This event delves into the debate and controversies that arise from the application of time bar clauses.
Cost(s): Attendance to this event is free of charge, but pre-registration is required in order to receive the Zoom link.
