This seminar is given by Adriana San Román, member of the ICCA-ASIL Task Force on Damages on International Arbitration, legal and financial damages expert, and Dr. Herfried Wöss, international arbitrator and counsel, with the participation of Prof. Pablo T. Spiller, who are the authors of the Oxford University Press monograph on “Damages in International Arbitration under Complex Long-term Contracts” (2014) and leading experts in this field.

Damages are the principal remedy in international business, in particular, with respect to complex long-term contracts such as turnkey construction projects, public-private partnerships, concessions, oil & gas projects, and also as regards less complex contractual relationships such as international sales contracts where specific performance is often not available under the applicable law, or simply not practical.

The objective of this seminar is to introduce the participants to the damages doctrine under different rules of law, including international law, and guide them on how to structure a damages claim or to reason a damages award. We will analyze cases using International sales, turnkey construction contracts, joint venture agreements, post M&A disputes, PPPs, oil & gas projects and other income generating contracts and investments.

The seminar is directed to counsel, arbitrators, mediators, government officials, claim managers, project directors, CFOs, project finance lawyers and economic and financial experts, academics and postgraduate students, involved or interested in commercial and investment arbitration. The case studies are directly related to the topics analyzed.
