Construction & Infrastructure

We frequently advise governments, quasi-governmental organisations, employers, funders and contractors on the full spectrum of construction and infrastructure disputes. We have acted in a wide range of investment treaty and commercial arbitrations under the rules of all major arbitration institutions, including the ICSID, ICC, SIAC, SCC and UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules.

Key cases include:

  • Acting in an ICC arbitration in respect of a mega-project to develop an integrated resort on a holiday island, requiring investment of approximately US$2.5 billion. 

  • Acting for a French and Italian joint venture against a major Japanese corporation in a SIAC arbitration relating to the construction of a metro line in Vietnam.

  • Acting for an Eastern European State in a high-profile commercial arbitration under UNCITRAL Rules arising out of the construction of a trans-border highway, a project worth €1.4 billion.

  • Advising a South Asian State-owned entity on its project with an international renowned chain of hotels for operation of a hotel, which gave rise to a dispute following a hiatus in the construction of the hotel.

  • Acting for a Chinese State-owned entity in relation to its dispute with a Lebanese Consultant in an EPC project in Saudi Arabia worth US$750 million, governed by Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (SCC) Rules and English law.
