Construction & Engineering London Legal Update: Issue 63

May 2012
Mayer Brown Legal Update
If you haven’t yet booked your holidays, we can offer a wide choice of destinations. How about Afghanistan? Jon Olson-Welsh and Tamsin Travers check out the legal regime that will govern commercial activity. Or perhaps India, where the Supreme Court has to decide if arbitration has a serious future in the country. Vietnam? Kevin Hawkins and Matthew Williams in the Mayer Brown Ho Chi Minh City office look at doing business in Vietnam. Or Libya? Raid Abu-Manneh and Wisam Sirhan consider the commercial reality - past, present and future. And our Africa team have produced a rather handy Quick Reference Guide to international arbitration in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Venna Cheng from the Mayer Brown Hong Kong office has produced a helpful guide to the changes to the ICC Arbitration Rules and, with one eye on the new age of oral Construction Act contracts, we look at two cases on the unexciting, but potentially crucial, virtue of putting contracts in writing – and accurately. We preview some new Government procurement recipes, we discover whether contractors have to proceed “regularly and diligently” and discuss the importance of time limits. And then there are some case notes, contract updates and other news to complete the mix.
