Calling in the Lawyers – What to expect and how to ease the pain

Event organised by Offshore Engineering Society

This event has now ended

You can catch-up on details or any broadcast and downloads here.


When and why do lawyers get called in on an offshore project? What will they be looking for and what does dispute resolution actually involve? Do lawyers in fact have two heads and a poor grasp of the real world?

If you are a member of the project team then can you/should you hide your files in a drawer at their first approach and run for the hills? How much of your electronic correspondence will be pulled out and reviewed? Will you be called as a witness and if so what does that involve? What can you do to make the process less painful and increase your company's chances of success?

Have you ever considered working as an expert witness – if so what do you need to get started and what makes a good one?
