Why are documents and factual witnesses so important in construction arbitrations?

We are pleased to share the third episode in our Construction Arbitration podcast series, in which we discuss the importance of documents and factual witnesses in construction arbitrations.

In this episode Craig Tevendale (Partner, UK Head of International Arbitration), Susan Field (Senior Associate, International Arbitration) and Olivia Liang (Associate, Construction & Infrastructure Disputes) take a look at how the factual complexity of construction disputes makes fact evidence particularly important. In particular, they cover the harvesting of documents and document management, document creation and retention, document production, predictive coding, fact witnesses and language issues which may arise.
