Construction Arbitration in Central and Eastern Europe: Contemporary Issues | Crina Baltag, Cosmin Vasile (ed.)

Overview: Construction Arbitration in Central and Eastern Europe takes a close look at the contemporary topics in construction arbitration and related procedures, with a focus on Central and Eastern Europe. Complex construction projects often give rise to disputes which are usually submitted to dispute boards and arbitration for their resolution. The successful execution of a construction project is inextricably linked to the management of risks and the expeditious settlement of any disputes that may arise. In this regard, the wealth of experience gained by Central and Eastern European practitioners in dealing with complex issues arising in construction projects is highly relevant to international arbitration. Thus, this timely book provides a combination of local expertise and cross-jurisdictional perspectives on topics that most often emerge in construction disputes, which resonate far beyond the specific regions covered.

What’s in this book:

The contributors, all practitioners with significant expertise in international and domestic construction disputes in Central and Eastern European countries, focus on the following topics:

  • the peculiarities of evidence in construction disputes;
  • the probative value of dispute boards, as well as their enforceability;
  • multiparty issues triggered by the participation of various stakeholders besides employer, contractor and subcontractors;
  • provisional measures;
  • arbitrability of contracts with public authorities;
  • issues of liquidated damages;
  • changes of legislation and costs over the passage of time;
  • time-bar issues; and
  • resolution of disputes related to construction projects as protected investments.

How this will help you:

Given the increasing number of disputes and the scarce resources available, this essential guide with its cross-border perspective will prove invaluable to practitioners and academics in the field of construction law and dispute resolution. Rather than being a narrowly structured multijurisdictional guide or a comparative study, the book is a practical compendium about resolving construction disputes in the region and is a must read for any practitioner in Central and Eastern Europe.”
