Episode 11: Kjersti Lerkerod

Oslo-based senior lawyer Kjersti Lerkerod joins our very own Mario Christophides to discuss the challenges with handling disputes in these uncertain times, as well as her best tips for managing contract disputes in general and the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on the industry.

Here are Kjersti's five top tips for handling dispute challenges relating to coronavirus in a construction project:

  1. Make sure to notify claims according to the contract
  2. Take reasonable efforts to try to overcome the obstacles
  3. Produce and transmit documentation identifying the negative impact of the coronavirus, for example, daily or weekly reports
  4. Initiate a constructive dialogue with your contract parties
  5. Be careful to distinguish between corona related challenges and other obstacles in a project. The latter should be notified and documented separately
