This workshop will focus on the use of standard form contracts in Hong Kong, both from a legal and practical perspective. The Hong Kong Government’s support of NEC is widespread, and we are seeing FIDIC being commonly used as the starting point for contracts on the Belt and Road. But what does this actually mean in practice for the delivery of these projects. Are parties staying true to the contracts’ objectives? These matters and more will be addressed during the workshop.

The use of experts in court to provide expert opinion is well-founded. However, the derivation of evidence and the quality of the ‘science’ is often challenged. In the US courts this process is called a Daubert challenge.
