Kachkin & Partners experts participated in the conference on FIDIC Contracts took place in Warsaw

The international conference on use of FIDIC contracts was held 26-27 April, 2012 in Warsaw, Poland. The event was organized with the support of the Court of Arbitration at the Polish Chamber of Commerce, the International Federation of Consulting Engineers.

At the conference, lawyers, investors, heads of construction enterprises, representatives of public organizations presented their views and concerns. The experts discussed the benefits of work via FIDIC models, and they also shared their experience of FIDIC contracts use in the Eastern Europe.

Dmitry Nekrestyanov, the Head of Real Estate and Investments Practice at Kachkin & Partners, and Evgeny Shirstov, the Senior Associate participated in the event.  “The use of the international legal standards, including FIDIC contracts, is now gaining ground in Russia. The implementation of such instruments is conducted through the approval of their particular provisions with the imperative norms of the Russian legislation and submission of the disputes to the international commercial and arbitration courts”,- explain Kachkin & Partners experts. However there is still an issue concerning adaptation of the international standards to the realities of the Russian construction market. To solve this problem it is necessary to draft local FIDIC-based standard contract, which can be used by all market players. It is impossible to accomplish without in-depth study of our foreign colleagues’ experience, — as the experts note.
