about this item

Al-hamdu lillah - finally, a proper book on construction law in the Gulf region... Michael Grose's book Is an indispensable guide to anyone with an interest in the law relating to construction contracts In the Gulf region. It is practical, sensible, and based on unrivalled research. Like certain provisions of the Civil Codes, this book is mandatory. Richard Harding QC, in Construction Law International

The principal theme of this guide Is the contrast between construction law in an Islamic civil law jurisdiction and construction law In a common law jurisdiction. There is a tendency for these differences to be glossed over due to the lack of any detailed comparative analysis

The author has provided here the first authoritative text on the application of the laws of the UAE, and to a lesser extent of the wider Gulf region, to the most commonly occurring issues of controversy arising from construction projects. There are extensive extracts from the region's applicable laws, all translated from the original Arabic, and hundreds of judgments of the most senior courts used to back up the analysis provided

The sources of information contained here are not readily available to those without access to a database of relevant laws and judgments, and the book is essential reading for all those with a contractual or legal interest in construction projects in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. It provides practical and technical guidance on an inaccessible but highly relevant topic, giving anyone advising on construction contracts or administering construction claims in the Gulf a competitive edge. The book is likely to be of particular interest to those with responsibility for drafting or amending contracts or commercial terms; preparing risk reviews; administering contracts (especially using the FIDIC Conditions); managing health and safety; preparing or assessing claims; negotiating final accounts and disputes; and conducting litigation or arbitration
