Risk Management 

Construction Law

The mechanism for dispute resolution and the contractual provisions

Construction is a dynamic process fraught with complex relationships, sophisticated contracts, financing, design, engineering, procurement, and supply.  Statistics show that construction is the riskiest of human work activities. As projects grow in size, cost and complexity, so does the array of risks to which they are exposed and also the disputes, which arise when any of these risks eventuates. But to whom do these risks belong?

Construction projects are susceptible to risk cultivation by the parties involved or by others associated with them or advising them. The risks are generally allocated to the contracting parties in the construction project in accordance with the contractual arrangements made through standard forms of contract.

 

This combination of skills is precisely why PAN Partners provides unsurpassed value to its construction industry clients. We work with many of our clients at an early stage of design and construction, preventing problems on site escalating into formal proceedings. We provide practical advice, fight hard when necessary and maintain pressure on the opponents, whilst always looking to achieve the earliest possible resolution, often through proactive use of mediation and other forms of ADR. 

 

“No two construction projects are alike, even when designed and constructed in a similar manner”-Peyman A. Nejad, Founder & President of PAN Partner

The construction industry is a fast developing and innovative industry. The materials selected for use generally include a number of new products of unproved performance or strength. And many construction projects are located in isolated regions with difficult terrain, sometimes stretching over extensive areas and exposed to natural hazards of unpredictable intensity, frequency and return period.
