Why You Should Attend

Critical Risks of EPC Contracting for Large Infrastructure Projects

Lack of focus and clarity in an EPC contract can lead to great disappointment for all parties involved in a project. The objective of this course is to assist professionals in avoiding unnecessary contractual mistakes. In some sense, contractual mistakes are just another name for experience, which is used as the basis to suggest how to implement contractual strategies. The challenge of the parties to a contract is not to try to eliminate risk but rather to put into place a narrative structure that enables the parties to predict what contractual result would be obtained if a risk materializes.
