Dispute Resolution in the Mining and Energy Sectors

 Event starts: June 27th, 2019

 Location:  Bali

This event was in the past and has been closed.

FACT: As highly globalized industries, the mining and energy sectors often involve multinational, long-term contracts that involve governments or other fairly volatile parties who are inevitably more susceptible to fluctuating economic, political, environmental, and situational changes than 'regular'corporations. Consequently, mining and energy disputes are riddled with both pervasive financial risk factors and complex party-associated challenges. Disputes are rarely straightforward and can embroil a spectrum of wildly diverse issues.

While no one, especially parties to mining and energy projects, wants to envision and articulate all the ways in which things can potentially go wrong, it is undeniably vital to understand and anticipate the common pitfalls to devise effective risk-management strategies to avoid disputes or mitigate exposure to disputes. Quite often, the question is not whether a project will be subject to a dispute but rather how well such dispute can be managed.

Led by experts in the field, this course offers both, a theoretical framework for dispute resolution and practical, hands-on guidance through relevant case study discussion. It will not only examine international arbitration’s role in resolving these unique disputes but also how and when to integrate current arbitration trends/lessons in dispute resolution strategies. Moreover, this course will provide actionable insight into industry-specific legal due diligence and guidance on drafting effective arbitration clauses in Indonesia, ensuring careful consideration of the whole project in the mining or energy sector is reflected in order to mutually benefit all involved parties. No doubt, this is the perfect short course to either get your mining and energy specialization rolling or to expand/perfect your existing knowledge as a practicing lawyer, arbitrator, mediator, legal academic or executive from a company active in the mining/energy sector.

Are you a government official responsible for mining and energy regulations, a mining and energy executive, an attorney frequently dealing with matters in the mining and energy industries, a construction executive normally involved with mining and energy related projects, a member of the in-house counsel team of a mining or energy-related corporation, an industry thought leader, an insurance professional normally engaged for mining and energy-related projects, an international arbitrator or mediator aspiring to add or improve expertise in mining and energy, a professor, legal academic, or student looking to increase real-time knowledge, or an investor affected by current mining and energy developments? If so, BIAMC's 1-Day Workshop is ideal for you!

At BIAMC, we merge practical, comprehensive curriculum with unparalleled instruction from top foreign and domestic experts.
