Arbitration, adjudication and insolvency
Jonathan Cope, director, MCMS Ltd
"By all accounts arbitration is enjoying a bit of a resurgence. Rising court fees and increasing costs management in the TCC... appears to be leading to more and more parties choosing arbitration, rather than litigation, in their contracts."
Getting paid: remedies for non-payment in the UAE construction industry
Charlotte Leggett, associate and Mark Raymont, partner, Pinsent Masons LLP
"There is no equivalent legislation [to the Construction Act 1996] currently enacted in the UAE. As a result, a number of the contracting restrictions in the UK that reduce contractors’ risk in relation to payment do not apply in the UAE."

Caroline Pope, partner, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP
"TeCSA will keep the TCC informed of how practitioners are finding [the TCC electronic pilot] and, if teething problems are to be ironed out anywhere, a pilot in the TCC is probably the best place to do it."
