Corbett & Co Publishes List of FIDIC Cases
Our team at Corbett & Co has compiled a list of FIDIC-related court judgements and arbitral awards.
In addition to our case summaries, which we are adding to with each update, the FIDIC Case Law Table includes links to the judgments and awards, the year, jurisdiction and the list of clauses each case considers.
We hope our list is comprehensive but if you are aware of any other judgments or awards that should feature in the table, please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
