FIDIC Claims

Individuals involved in construction or other large projects are often unclear as to the obligations of parties regarding claims and how to correctly perform these obligations. Unfortunately, if claims are not managed effectively, there is a probability that issues will escalate into costly and time-consuming disputes. A correct understanding and the proper management of claims can significantly improve the bottom line of construction projects whilst maintaining goodwill between the parties.
