"Highly recommended. The subject of claims simplified in a very realistic and practical manner."

Without a doubt, the best seminar of its kind in all of Europe. You will have a much better understanding of the intricacies
of FIDIC and construction disputes.

A great workshop, a perfect combination of theoretical knowledge and practical examples;

I really appreciated it.

Rajs construction claims seminar can make the difference when you are involved with preparing a construction claim.
The seminar had a multitude of real life case studies & workshops which were very practical and also involved key legal
principles. I strongly recommend it to legal, technical and acquisition specialists.

I think it's definitely the best workshop on FIDIC I have attended so far. As a lawyer specialised in FIDIC agreements, I
can definitely say it was extremely useful for a much better understanding of the claims mechanisms. Thank you!

Without any doubt the master workshop produces results, offers in-depth study of construction claims topics and has
been specifically developed to address the most relevant needs of today's claims.

The structure of the seminar was really well thought out. The interactive tools used generated lively discussions and I
found this to be a highly effective method for sharing valuable information. The overall quality of the seminar was simply
outstanding and I feel that I gained a much better understanding of FIDIC and construction disputes in a short space of

Informative as expected and I would like to attend seminars like this in future.

One of the best conferences I have attended!

Very interesting training!

Excellent hands-on training on Time/Cost/Concurrent delays. Fantastic!

Professionally delivered, with focus on the matter and in a great tempo. Involving the group in workshops keeps
everyones attention high.
