On 26th April the Young Members Group of CIArb Kenya Branch held an event in conjunction with The Alliance for Equality in Dispute Resolution in Nairobi. The event was sponsored by Iseme Kamau and Maema Advocates (a member of DLA Piper Africa). The event was tailor-made for young professionals, students and aspiring dispute resolvers in the construction industry. The speakers were experienced arbitrators and construction adjudicators in the construction industry. The audience learned a lot about dispute resolution with a specific focus on the construction industry. The event culminated with an engaging networking cocktail reception.
On behalf of the Young Members Group and as the Alliance for Equality in Dispute Resolution Ambassador extended their gratitude to the speakers, attendees, CIArb Kenya Branch Committee and IKM Advocates.
