A global guide to construction contracting

Force majeure and alternative relief under construction contracts and local laws

Global Publication May 2020

In these extraordinary times, our market-leading, global construction team is increasingly advising on force majeure and related relief claims arising under the various different standard forms of construction contract, which are themselves subject to a variety of different governing laws.

To assist navigating such claims, in particular for international organisations with construction projects in multiple jurisdictions, we have prepared this concise reference guide, which sets out the relevant provisions of the standard form construction contracts used in - and the local laws of - the countries listed below.

We shall be updating this guide periodically, so do let us know if there are countries and/or standard form contracts that you would like to see included.
