The new FIDIC Suite of Contracts

Aarhus - 24.01.2018
Copenhagen - 25.01.2018

The release of the new FIDIC Suite of Contracts is expected to offer many improvements and adjustments of the existing suite of 1999. Come to one of our after-work meetings in Copenhagen and Aarhus – and get wiser on the changes.

At this course – after a brief introduction to the FIDIC contracts – NJORD Law Firm will go through the new contracts, set out the changes, and explain how they are likely to affect FIDIC-based contracts.

Attorneys Lars Merrild Hareskov and Steffen Hebsgaard Muff will touch upon subjects such as the new risk allocation scheme, contract management, and dispute resolution so you understand how to implement these in your organisation.

A detailed programme for the course will follow the official release of the contracts, which is expected this year.

The course will be in English and is relevant for all current and potential FIDIC users.

The course will provide three credit points for the obligatory continuing legal education (advokaters løbende efteruddannelse).
